Last 90 quarter 60 sem. units GPA "part time" student
I'm applying to a UCLA graduate program and am trying to figure out how to answer their GPA question.
The online application for the university asks only for the last 90 units because they are only really interested in our Junior and Senior year GPAs.
I just finished Junior year at my UC where I am getting my undergrad and was a transfer student from a CC.
While I have been at the UC I have taken 3 classes per quarter instead of 4, for my Junior year.
The reason I didn't take more is that I was also full time at a community college finishing a second AS degree in addiction studies for certification as a counselor, and this took up a lot of time because it included internships and basically every quarter I was enrolled in 3 or more classes at the community college at the same time.
So if they want the last 90 units, do I need to include grades from my community college?
If I am going to include grades from my community college should I just send them grades from all these addiction counseling classes I took that is separate from my major at the UC I am at, or should I send them grades from classes related to my major at the UC that are older. I have an AA in psychology and my major is psychology at the UC, if that makes sense?
I don't want them to look at my record and think that I only am a part time student, I'm more than full time when you consider the concurrent enrollment. My GPA would not change if I am considering the past 90 / 60 units so I'm not worried about that, they just have this chart they want me to fill out that lists the classes.
