To apply for one of the Occupational Associate Degree or Certificate programs at Laurus College, students should contact the college, or have their vocational rehabilitation counselor contact the school if coming through a third party organization, to reserve an appointment with an admissions representative. Students not attending by way of a third party organization are required to submit an application, complete and sign an enrollment agreement. For students who are applying by way of a third-party organization, the college will work with the student’s agency counselor to initiate all enrollment processes after the required interview.
Prospective students must have evidence of a high school diploma, or its equivalent, or verified evidence of having completed a post-secondary education degree. Initial applications may be submitted by prospective students completing his or her junior or senior year of high school; however, applicants will not be permitted to begin classes until submission of the appropriate documentation as referenced. The School Chancellor is responsible for determining if an applicant has met all admission requirements.
Laurus College neither administers nor accepts ability-to-benefit (ATB) examinations in place of high school diploma (or its equivalent) requirements.
Please note: All courses at Laurus College are taught in the English language.
In compliance with Civil Rights Legislation, Laurus College admits students without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, religion, creed, marital status, color, age, disability, or any other factor prohibited by law.

Students who previously attended an accredited or approved college or university may be granted transfer credit at the sole discretion of Laurus College. Only courses carrying a value of three (3) course credits or higher from the previous institution, and in which the student earned a grade of C (2.0) or above, will be considered for transfer. Laurus College does not guarantee the acceptance of any credit into the college without review of the official transcript forwarded directly to the school for review. It is the responsibility of the student to have all official transcripts forwarded directly to the school for review if transfer credit is sought. Evaluation of official transcripts must be completed before the end of the student’s first term at the school. All transfer decisions are final, without appeal, and are at the discretion of the college administration. While there is no charge for the review of transcripts from other institutions, there will be a fee of $250.00 charged for each course in the student’s program which is waived due to transfer credit. Laurus College does not accept transfer credit for courses older than seven (7) years from the time of enrollment in their program.
Laurus College has an articulation agreement with Lincoln University in Oakland California to transfer as many as 43 credits from the Occupational Associates Professional Business Systems Program to Lincoln’s Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration Program.
Transfer of credit into the school, and credit granted for proficiency, will count towards the student’s total credits attempted and total credits completed in their program, which will affect the student’s approved time frame to successfully complete the program for which they are enrolled.
