I just submitted a transfer application where I gave this answer for one of the questions:
“How many college credits will you have earned when you enroll at the college to which you are applying?
Answer: 15 - 29
I’m in my second semester of junior year and have earned 22 credits prior to this semester because my university’s credit system is different (1 course = 1.0 credit), so I answered the question based on that (2 credits from HS and 20 in college). I triple-checked and searched for information online about this, and even my transcript literally says that I have 22 credit hours earned, so I stuck to the “15-29” answer instead of choosing any of the other options.
But, after reading the fine print in the application I submitted, I saw this:
" NOTE: Students may only apply to the Explore Program for Undeclared Students if they will have 32 credits or fewer at the time of enrolling at Northeastern.”
Right…so, it looks like maybe they expected me to use another number.
I looked at my academic transcript again and it has this thing that says “Quality Points: 77.6”. I’m guessing that I should have maybe submitted an answer in that region instead of 15-29.
Is this a big deal? Should I contact Northeastern and notify them about this? What do I do?
