Calculating transfer credits from different schools? PLEASE HELP

Postby adamforeman4 » Sun Dec 11, 2016 3:16 am

I began my undergraduate career at an institution that has a 4-1-4 schedule and each class counts as a 4 credit hour course. I transferred into another school that has 3 credit hours classes. When calculating my GPA, will the classes from my previous school count the same? Or will the 4 credit class from my previous school count more since they are actually "4 hour" classes?

This forum is for law school transfers, but to answer your question:

Your old grades likely won't count towards your GPA at your new school, but will still count as four credit hours on your LSAC GPA.
