LSDAS GPA Question

Postby upwardtrend » Sun Jun 06, 2010 1:45 am

Do college/community college classes taken during HS that are not on my undergrad transcript and do not count towards my undergrad degree count for LSDAS GPA?

My HS had a program where I took one class from UNC-Greensboro and one from the local community college- the credit would have transferred to my undergrad institution if I had chosen to attend any school in the UNC system but I went to Duke where they do not accept this work as credit. Both the community college and UNCG still have transcripts of the classes I took so I was just wondering.

I will preface this by saying that, if counted, it would actually make my LSDAS GPA go up but i think its absolutely ridiculous. These courses dont even count at my undergrad institution and they were taken years ago.

You know what sucks, classes taken after your bachelor's degree don't count.

+1

although they have some say at lower end schools.... i called syracuse and they said that while its not officially looked at, if you did the work, they do see it... take it for what its worth ( I wish they factored it in as much as ug)
