Former UCR student dismissed and stuck in transfer limbo
Ok so I took 6 classes at UCR during the two quarters I was there from 2008-early 2009 and did badly in half of them, like below C badly. I was thereby dismissed with a pretty bad GPA, i wanna say a 1.7 and here i am almost four years later about to transfer out of a community college where I am a psych undergrad. I have an ok GPA of about a 3.3, hoping to bump it to a 3.5 after i finish the last 3 classes I need to transfer out this semester. Problem is, the grades I got at UCR are bringing me way down and I cannot get in to retake those classes at UCR because of the high traffic of students attempting to add classes right now. My chances are looking slim to none as far as getting into one of the coursed im attempting to get into. Current students get priority first and then extension students which includes me. I had thought I would be saved by some form of academic forgiveness but now i'm scrambling to find a way to get past this roadblock. There is seemingly no other way to boost up my GPA without retaking those classes at UCR and replacing those F's i got in order to bring up my overall cumulative transfer GPA. I am posting here in the hopes of getting some type of guidance, hell even some optimism would be nice as the system has left me hopeless. You would think there'd be something in place for a student is trying to make right at a CC and transfer out but my past is haunting me, please help. Tell me there is something else I can do besides hope that a spot opens up next quarter when im left sitting in the dark this one.
