Prospective Students

Are you passionate about weather? Our program engages and challenges students who have wanted to study weather since an early age.

Our hands-on curriculum is taught by enthusiastic faculty who are experts in their respective fields.

We offer many quality internship opportunities both on and off campus. Scholarship opportunities exist for those who need financial assistance and/or who demonstrate academic excellence.

 Transfer Students

Thinking about transferring to the Atmospheric Sciences Department at Lyndon?

Each year, we welcome a number of students who transfer to our program from other colleges and Universities around the country or from other careers. Transfer students have many questions related to credit transfer, which courses they will need to takeare required, and how long it will it take to earn the degree. Here are some general guidelines that may help you in the transferring process:

  1. A course will transfer for a similar course at Lyndon if the course contents are similar and the number of credits is are the same. This is done on a course-by-course basis in our Students Services Department with advisement by the Atmospheric Sciences Department.
  2. Many of your General Education courses will likely transfer to Lyndon.
  3. If you are transferring from a non-science major and need to take Calculus and Physics, the time required to complete the major will likely be four years.
  4. If you have already taken Calculus I along with high-school physics, you can complete the degree in three years. This assumes that you are transferring approximately thirty General Education credits to Lyndon.
  5. If you have taken a number of Calculus, Physics, and Meteorology courses, it is possible to complete the degree in two years.

Please contact the Atmospheric Sciences Department Chairperson with any questions you may have about the transfer process or to receive a preliminary assessment of which of your courses will transfer to Lyndon.

High School Preparation

There are many factors that contribute to a student’s success. In addition to their passion for weather, a student’s high school preparation is an important factor.

Meteorology is a science that is rooted in math and physics. We therefore recommend that students take these subjects along with other physical science courses in high school. This is especially important with high-school physics since it is a prerequisite in our four-year program.
