Welcome, LCC students!

At Davenport, transfer students are a vital part of our student body. You bring experience to share and inspire others with your focus on career goals. We set you up for success with personal transfer planning, assigned personal academic advisors, generous financial aid and career guidance for life.

With about 40% of our students being transfer students, you won’t be alone on this journey.

Top reasons to transfer to Davenport

As you make the transfer from Lansing Community College, Davenport University will connect you with our dedicated transfer admissions team to help you get the most transfer college credits, connect you with financial aid and provide the guidance you need every step of the way.  

Here are a few other reasons Davenport stands out:

Special partnership programs

  • Consortium - Take Davenport and Lansing Community College classes in the same semester and utilize Davenport financial aid to help cover the cost of both. This is a great option to help you complete your associate degree requirements while you step toward your bachelor’s degree.
  • BSN Completion - ADN/RN to BSN can be completed in as little as one year, fully online. 
  • BS Health Service Administration and BS Health and Human Services Case Management - Advanced standing credits are awarded to LCC students completing associate degrees in the health field.

An affordable education

Davenport makes education affordable. That’s why our tuition is one of the lowest of all private colleges and universities in Michigan.

All transfer students have a guaranteed transfer scholarship waiting for them once they apply because we want to help you advance and don’t want finances to stand in the way. These scholarships range from $4,500 to $6,500. 

And if you’re a member of Phi Theta Kappa, you qualify for an additional scholarship of $1,500. 

President's Transfer Scholarship

You could go to Davenport University for free if you win the President's Transfer Scholarship! The scholarship is specifically for LCC students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher and a completed associate's degree.* The application will be opening April 2024 and will go through June 1.  

    Hear from students like you

    "Choosing to further my education at Davenport University was a huge decision that I am glad I made. I did enjoy my time at LCC; the programs that DU offers are designed to prepare you as a student for a career after schooling. I am pursuing a Business BBA and in my classes, my instructors have had experience in business and know the skills that employers are looking for. As far as the process of transferring to DU, everyone in the admissions office was extremely helpful and made it very easy. We sat down and discussed a plan to help me successfully transfer over to DU. DU also offers many students services such as helping with financing for college with a customized financial aid plan and career planning services that will help you be placed with a job in your field of study. I have enjoyed my time here and can't wait to continue my education at DU!"
