Do Dual Credit Grades Matter?

edited December 2016 in Graduate School
I have no intention of going to Law School or Med School.


The only grad school I'm remotely interested in is a CS masters or an MBA. Will they look at my Dual Credit grades Technically, my College GPA is a 3.83 with my 18 hours of dual credit complete.

What will grad schools look at? My GPA for my major is a 4.0.

I know whichever school I end up at will take credits, not grades. I just want to know how much I should stress out this semester about getting stellar grades. I'm a senior and I won't have my grades back until after May, so I will already be accepted, or declined, to all of my schools.

    When you apply to grad school (or for a job that requires all of your transcripts) youwill need to send official copies of all of your transcripts, so yes those old dual-credit grades will matter. Just how much they matter will depend on what else you have done since you took the classes, so think twice before deliberately slacking off.
