<p>"I had credit transferred from a college back home and only the credit transferred in, no change to the GPA. "</p>
<p>Yes that is generally the case for unaffiliated colleges.</p>
<p>However for members of consortia this is not always the case.
For example, it is not the case for memebers of the five-college consortium in Massachusetts, or the Claremont college consortium in California.</p>
<p>Penn is a member of "the Quaker consortium", with Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore. I was trying to determine how grades were handled for courses taken at the different Quaker consortium schools. Not at an unaffiliated college.</p>
<p>"GPA is not affected"
Even for a course taken pursuant to The Quaker Consortium agreement at one of the other member colleges ?</p>
