jenesaislaw here was my thinking. The way my school works, you need 20 credits to graduate. Once you have fulfilled that, you are granted an undergraduate degree (of course meeting other requirements). If you take classes that go over this, they will come after your degree. I will be granted my degree as soon as I hit 20 credits. If I were to have credits go over this, they would be post-degree credits. Or are you saying that any class you take, regardless of whether or not it is a pre or post degree credit, as long as it was taken before an initial degree was awarded, it counts? Obviously I'm not trying to misinform anyone, this is just how I've understood it to apply.
yes yes you do, of course you do, but anything beyond 20 credits isn't counted towards the degree. Perhaps they still exist pre-degree on the transcript and just ignored. I was under the impression it would be report as:20 CreditsDegree GrantedAny extra credits. But maybe it's just:20 CreditsAny extra creditsDegree grantedEither way, it doesn't really affect me. I'm not trying to hijack the thread, just figure out how it'll work. I guess when I see my transcript, I'll know!
JeNeSaisLaw, thank you so much for making that clear. But would taking CC classes negatively influence my admissions process? Would adcom look at me and say "This kid clearly was trying to inflate his gpa so lets put him in the bottom of the stack." or would they not care at all? Should I write an addendum explaining my interest in art as a reason for taking summer classes?Thanks alot.
