Excess Credit Question
#1
I think once I have fulfilled my core degree requirements, I will have over the # of credits required. Does anyone know how this works ie can I pick and choose which are applied to the degree ? I'd like to drop a couple of those of those C's I earned way back when...I am SO much more responsible now Cool

Depends on which school you are at. Check with your academic advisor. Excelsior had allowed this but changed their policy Jan 1, 08.

Check and let us know what you find out. I am curious as well.

I forgot to note in my original post I was asking about EC, that is where I am guessing I will wind up. I am not enrolled so I dont have access to a degree advisor, which is why I thought I would toss it out here.

From what I remember reading they will take both scores and mark the second credit as a duplicate credit but take the higher score when they figure your EC GPA. You have a second GPA that will reflect any cources you earned credit in and all credits will show up on your transcript. The only grades you "get rid of" are classes you attempted before enrolling in which your transcripts shows a "W, F, I" or otherwise shows no credit awarded.

At least that is what I gathered from the handbook. Check with your advisor when you apply.

Thanks for answering....My credits wont be duplicates ie the same class but I will have excess credits from taking some 6 credit CLEPs and fulfilling some core requirements. For example I will have 130 credits when I only need 120, I was hoping I could drop some of the old Cs and use the ungraded CLEP credit thus bumping my GPA since those credit will just be electives.
