College Advising Center

For Transfer Students

Welcome to Lewis & Clark College!

Transfer students enrich our community with diverse experiences and perspectives, and we invite you to take advantage of the range of academic opportunities at LC by exploring fascinating new subjects and delving deeper into areas in which you held an interest in at your previous institution.

Over the summer, you will be working with a Faculty Advisor in the department of your prospective major to help navigate your academic transition (you will be matched with a College Advisor, as well). The Advising Questionnaire is crucial to match you with a Faculty Advisor, so we encourage your to complete this form by July 1st, or as soon as possible after you are admitted. 

The College Advising Center is here to help, too. In addition to the Transfer Student Guide to Pioneer Life (GPS), many of the questions you may have about transfer credit or registration are answered in our Transfer Students FAQ.

You might also want to explore our advice about Getting Started in a Major or Minor, specialized guidance for Prospective Math, Science, or Environmental Studies Majors, or learn more about Placement Exams.

You are also welcome to contact the College Advising Center whenever you have questions about your academic plans and progress: email us at cac@lclark.edu, call us at 503-768-7600, or make an appointment
