Do College GPAs Transfer When You Do?

Do College GPAs Transfer When You Do?
  • Opening Intro -

    You're planning to transfer colleges and are certain that all or at least most of the college credits accumulated elsewhere will be accepted by your future school.

-------------------------------------

This is good news as that will save you time and money, perhaps allowing you to finish your degree per your schedule. What you aren’t certain about is how your college will handle your grade point average. Read on for some options on how your school might handle your previous GPA. Of courses, check with your Registrar to confirm its policy.

A. Transfer Yes — Under this scenario, your new school will review your college transcripts, determine what classes will transfer and pull in your current GPA as a starting point. Going forward, your future grades will affect your cumulative GPA.

B. Transfer No — Your new college will accept your credits, but isn’t interested in your grades provided that you passed your courses or had at least a “C” in courses transferred. Still, your new school isn’t interested in how your previous college(s) calculated its GPA and will give you a “clean slate” going forward.

Moving Forward

Likely, your school will not transfer your GPA. Instead, the agreed upon credits will be accepted and count toward your graduation total with your GPA resetting. This means that the 3.78 GPA you received while at community college goes away. But, it also means that your 2.23 GPA at Private University is gone too. From this point forward you’ll start over so that you can move forward.

The advantage to a clean slate GPA is that it allows you to essentially chart your course. Get off to an excellent start in the first semester and you’ll have a strong foundation going forward. Start off with a lower GPA and you’ll be playing catch-up in subsequent semesters. A low GPA can also cost you an internship or your place on the school’s honor roll. Future employers will take notice too, so look at your reset as a “gift” instead of as a curse, your opportunity to start off your new school with a bang.

Summer Classes

What about summer classes or other classes you take at another school while enrolled elsewhere? Likely, the same arrangement applies — your credits and classes will be accepted, but your grade will not. However, your school *may* require that your class taken elsewhere be a “C” grade or better. Again, check with you Registrar and department’s dean before taking a class elsewhere that may not be eligible for a transfer.
