I've been wondering these things for a while now, but our transfer representative at my school is of not much help nor do the counselors have any information.... we'll see if people on this forum can help me
I'm pretty sure it's a common question among CCC students, but I'm actually getting pretty worried since I'm applying this year....
I got all 3's on my AP exams (Microecon, English Lit, Spanish Lang., and US Gov). When I began at my CC, I decided to post all my AP scores--don't know if that was a GOOD or BAD decision--because my college gave credit to all scores 3+. Because I got credit for those courses at my school, I automatically got credit for the equivalent courses at my school, English Writing 1?(English 101), Spanish 101, 102 (I'm assuming Spanish 1 & 2).
I know that some schools (SB, LA,...?) and so on give credit for scores 3 or higher, but others, like Berkeley, do not. It also depends upon the various campuses for what courses they will "waive" for AP scores in each area. To summarize: at my campus, I've fulfilled the IGETC requirements (b/c my school accepted the AP scores, and courses I've taken, obviously)
My worry right now is for my English and Spanish courses.
At my school, I got credit for the 1st English course sequence, and the first 2 Spanish class sequences. But when I transfer, will UC _____ make me retake the courses? Will that affect my admissions, especially if I don't have the English Writing requirement fulfilled (as per UC policy), or will they grant me transferable credit because my CC gave me credit?
I'm actually not as worried about my Spanish classes, because most campuses will require a foreign language exam (especially for Language majors--which is what my major is). But like English, will the UC's grant credit for the course? Or will I have to take the language classes next semester or something like that?
Thanks so much for your help!!!
