Keep your syllabi!!

<p>Hey potential transfer students: It is very important for your credits at your transferring institution to keep copies of your syllabus/syllabi for each course you've taken. Colleges, sometimes in the application process and sometimes in the registration process, want to see these, so they can determine what level of classes to place you in. Especially critical for classes that are required at most colleges - english 100, math, intro courses in your major (econ, e.g.). If you don't have these to use as ammo at your new college, you might have to re-take some cores. FYI</p>

<p>Entomom, maybe add this (if you haven't already) to your basic transfer info? Thanks!</p>

<p>Great advice, thanks!</p>

<p>Thank you so much for this. I was just about to go home and pitch mine from this past semester!</p>

<p>awks… already threw mine out… but you would only need them if you’re taking like a 300 or 400 course right? to prove that you did the previous level?</p>

<p>I don’t think you always need them, it will likely depend on the school you transfer from and to. It’s more of a cautionary measure, just-in-case, rather than a requirement for all schools.</p>

<p>I threw away most of mine but I can find course descriptions in the course catalog. That should be enough.</p>

<p>This is a good tip. I actually needed a syllabus for one of my critical thinking class in order for it to transfer, I wish someone had told me this way before I decided to transfer. I literally had to dig through the internet just to find it! From now on I’m saving each syllabus I get!</p>

<p>If you need a syllabus, check with your former classmates and with your old professors. It is almost certain that you can get copies.</p>

<p>And do hang onto every last paper, project, quiz, exam, etc. that was graded as part of the course. Those can make a difference too.</p>

<p>At Vanderbilt, for one, ONLY syllabi will do–course descriptions will not. You will absolutely NOT get credit taken for a course if you don’t submit its syllabus to be evaluated by faculty for credit.</p>

Is it possible to go another school with my associate I had abroad even if I am currently going to school here in America
