Hello all, I am currently enrolled at a local community college and the process has been a nightmare. At this moment I am struggling with my GPA as some old transcripts surfaced from courses I took 20 years ago and have brought my GPA down from a 4.0 to a 2.45. I admit, when I was younger, I signed up for a few classes, went a few times and then never went back. Well 20 years later I decided to get myself back into college but, as you can see it is very frustrating to see my entire last semester go up in flames because of a dumb decision I made as a kid. Granted, I “committed the crime”.
The question is, can I get them expunged? I wanted to start over, and told the school as much when I started, but they have been extremely limited on the information they are sharing, either because they don’t know or because …. Well who knows. They tell me that its not possible and that it is a federal mandate that all schools must keep all grades on my transcripts regardless of their age. I find that hard to believe as I went to another school recently and took a few courses and that transcript doesn’t include my previous (20 year old) transcripts. In fact that school even told me, if you don’t want to send them to us we won’t use them.
Any suggestions? Those old classes will keep me from getting into med school.
There are a total of 3 classes on that old transcript, all with 0 GPA (F).
