About Transfer Credits...

Postby lhanvt13 » Mon Jan 23, 2012 5:41 pm

Hello, this is the first time posting here, and I just have a quick question. Say I have taken classes in a community college just for fun, but I did not transfer over the credits to my current university. Would LSAC also count those when evaluating my overall GPA? I hear that they would take all credits from whatever school I have attended whether or not the university which I graduate from counts those towards my GPA or credits. However, I am still not clear on how LSAC would handle this situation.

help TLS :)

Yes, you are supposed to submit the transcript from your community college regardless of whether your uni counted those credits or not.

You must send in your transcript from the county college. It will be included in your cumulative LSDAS GPA (the one that schools look at), not your degree GPA (unless the credits counted towards your degree).
