Taking classes above required credits

Postby nshapkar » Thu Feb 24, 2011 12:27 am

Okay so technically I am supposed to graduate this May, however, due to dropping a handful of classes I am behind eleven credits. I NEED Fre202, the rest can be lower division whatever the hell I want. I'm thinking spanish (4 credits) and philosophy (3). I was wondering, since I will be taking a year off and won't receive my degree until I apply for it, should I, while I'm at it, take a couple extra simple classes to raise the GPA a little?

Would it count towards my LSDAS GPA after I've passed the 120 required credits to graduate from ASU or does my GPA continue to rise until I apply to graduate? At the end of the semester I'll have 109...

Up until the point where you've officially graduated, everything counts.

You could go for 3 1/2 years, leave and go work, take a ton of community classes to boost your GPA, transfer back in and graduate, and all of it would count for your GPA.

The picture of Data makes me trust this absolutely. :) But yes, correct.
