On-Campus Undergraduate

Pathway Details

  • Guaranteed admission to students who graduate from LTCC and meet Prescott College undergraduate admission requirements.
  • Prescott College can accept up to 90 semester credits toward a bachelor’s degree here. Students must complete at least 36 upper division credits at PC. (Remember that LTCC credits are quarter credits, so they will be converted to semester credits when you transfer.) We encourage you to meet with us sooner than later to ensure we are mapping your courses and keeping you on track! 
  • If you are a student in the Wilderness Education and Outdoor Leadership program, see more details about transferred courses below.
  • LTCC students and alumni, faculty, and staff receive a 20% discount off published tuition or an eligible merit or institutional scholarship, whichever is higher.
    See our scholarship page for more details.

This partnership is effective immediately and there’s still time to apply for our online summer term
(which begins in May) or our on-campus or online fall semester (which begins in August)


Accelerated Master’s Opportunities

All Lake Tahoe students have the opportunity to accelerate into any Prescott College master’s program, which means beginning master’s level coursework as part of your bachelor’s degree. Students can “accelerate,” or cross-list up to 12 credits to count toward both their bachelor’s and master’s programs, and only pay the undergrad tuition rate for those courses that are going toward both degrees!

Wilderness Education & Outdoor Leadership

We don’t have to tell you that your WEOL program is one of the best in the business. We love that, and we’re excited to help build upon it toward a bachelor’s degree.

Our Adventure Education degree requires 120 total
semester credits, 60 of which must be in your competence (what we call a major). The competence is broken down
into different categories, and your LTCC courses have
been reviewed toward meeting our requirements

See course equivalencies here.

If you are planning to transfer into an on-campus
degree at Prescott College, we encourage you to be in touch with us at least a semester in advance.

If you’re completing your degree online, talk to your admissions counselor for more details.

On-campus or Online

We’d love for you to join us here in the cool pines of the central Arizona high desert, but if you don’t want to leave Lake Tahoe, we can’t blame you a bit. Our degrees can be completed online or on-campus, whichever works best for you, your learning style, and your goals.

Contact us and let us know which you prefer, and we’ll get you on your way in no time.
