Miami Lakes Educational Center and Technical College may award credit hours to students who previously attended another post-secondary institution or higher learning institute (college or university). The student must put in a request in writing at that institution to have their official transcript(s) forwarded to the Student Services Department at Miami Lakes Educational Center and Technical College (MLECTC). The transcripts will be evaluated by the department chairperson and program administrator to determine appropriate placement and the number of credit hours to be accepted. The student is then directed to complete the enrollment process for the requested program.

Students who transfer between programs do so by initiating a “Request for Transfer” form. This form is signed by both the sending and receiving instructors. Students who wish to transfer to other schools within the District may transfer seamlessly as this data is available electronically within the FOCUS software to the receiving institution. If approved, the student is directed to the registration office where the transfer is processed. Students transferring to a higher priced class will be required to pay the difference.
