Help!! REQUIRED to withdraw from university

<p>I was required to withdraw from my previous university because I had a GPA less than 2.0 and am now looking to transfer to a state college for fall 2012. I looked at my state's (VA) Guaranteed Admissions Agreements and all of them state that they reserve the right to deny admission to anyone who has been "suspended, academically dismissed..."</p>

<p>I have been enrolled at community college for a year now and will be entering my second year. I didn't do so well in my first semester, but got all As my second semester and intend to continue getting all As to show that I am very serious about doing well in my academics. </p>

<p>However, I don't want to go into the circumstances that led to my poor grades before and eventually, my withdrawal, from my previous university (in the explanation of circumstances section of college applications). I have learned from my mistakes and have put serious thoughts and efforts to make sure they do not happen again....but I am still very worried about how my previous required withdrawal from a university will reflect when I apply for fall transfer. </p>

<p>I intend to apply to business school too. Would taking more difficult courses instead of fulfilling general education requirements (and earning an AA/AS) look better to admission committees? </p>

<p>Am I absolutely required to submit transcripts from all previous institutions? I had heard mixed responses about this!</p>

<p>Any feedback about this would help :/</p>

<p>i regret spending so much time in the community college system. the universities have SO MUCH MORE to offer. get out of the community college as quick as possible and back into a university. don’t waste your time with their illegitimate classes, or the associates.</p>

<p>at the university you have honors, graduate courses as undergrad, research opportunities, recommendations… sure your credits will transfer, but honestly sometimes i think we would rather them not.</p>

<p>and now a song for our academic blues: <a href=“[/url]”>- YouTube;

<p>no offense to the community college systems in America; they did much for me, but i should not have let my dignity get in the way of me applying to transfer a year earlier than I did. now my life has become a mess (gap semesters) (way too many official withdraws) (total disaster outside of school) lesson learned.</p>

<p>good luck to you, rainbowhaze…</p>

<p>You have to send all of your transcripts. Period.</p>

<p>Make an appointment with the transfer counselor at your CC, and discuss your individual situation. It may be best that you complete a full AA so that you can go into one of the guaranteed transfer programs. However, you may have recovered enough to be able to apply now.</p>

<p>Thank you for the clarification and your advice happymomof1! I intend to meet with my transfer counselor by the end of this week once I compile all my questions so I can fully understand this entire process.</p>
