Hi! I'm not sure if you'll be able to answer this, but I was hoping I could avoid calling a bunch of schools to get the answer (but tell me if I should!). Mostly I want to avoid calling places because I really haven't really started thinking about where I want to apply and I hope the answer is the same for most schools.

I took physics in high school as a dual-enrolled class (meaning I was enrolled at the local community college). So when I enrolled at university, the credits (including lab credits) transferred for both physics I and II. So I never had to take the classes as part of my engineering curriculum (I'm a biomedical engineering major). But now I'm worried that since its only on my transcript as a transferred credit and doesn't have a grade, I'll have to take it over again! I've already taken it once and don't want to take it again! I'm sure I can study hard enough and do well on the OAT without re-taking the class!

hmm... great question..

I don't have an answer for you..

Seems like you took the initiative to do a lot more in high school... but now you need a grade for it... hmmm...


Best thing to do is talk to the admissions of the school(s) you are interested in... The sooner the better, so that you can get a plan together..

If it was dual enrollment you should have a transcript from the CC....correct?

You should have to submit ALL transcripts when applying... doesn't really matter if your University sees the course as a transfer and calls it a P/F or something like that (unless they won't let you take upper division level physics because of it and thats something you would like to do). If you have the grade for physics you have the grade for physics...

If you're an engineering major that wouldn't be a bad thing to take it over again. Since you already took it, it should be easier and it will really help you with those engineering classes. Plus, its a GPA booster and a heck of a lot easier than the engineering classes too!

I had the same as part of a program my physics classes transfered over.

But since im a prospective physics major, i have to take the calculus based one (1 semester left to complete it)...so yeah the chances are you probably will have to take it again if you want to do any type of physics/engineering.

As for the physics class alone, you might want to email some schools. My guess is that it would work since they require transcripts from all schools attended.

Exactly. Most university transcripts won't show a grade for ANY transfer credits (regardless of whether they were taken at another university or a CC). If you have the transcripts from the CC, you should be fine. If you're really worried it wouldn't hurt to send out a few emails to schools to double check.

Dr. Munroe (the admissions director from SCCO) has a facebook group where she answers questions like these. It wouldn't hurt to check it out.
