Do ungraded, non-credit course transcripts need to be sent?

Postby preamble » Tue Oct 17, 2017 6:42 pm

I'm graduating this December - I was interested in taking some "community learning" courses at a local community college for personal enrichment (foreign language courses more specifically.) These courses are ungraded and non-credit; does documentation of these courses need to be sent to LSAC/CAS?

Edit: What about non-credit, ungraded certificate programs? (Such as a "technical writing" certificate?)

Yes, they need to be reported. If there's a transcript issued, LSAC wants it.

Alrighty, thank you. They won't impact my overall application package though - right? Since there's no grade nor credit hours to factor into GPA calculation?

Yeah, they won't have an effect. And since it sounds like you're taking them after your degree is granted, they will double not-count.
