[TACRAO] Listserv Same Transfer Course/Different Credit Hours

Hi Emily,

Regardless of the change in hourly credits, we include the course with the highest grade in the grade point average.  Naturally, there are exceptions specific to instances in which both courses were passed and the additional hour is needed for degree completion.  Those instances would need to be dean approved and a manual change to the exclude and include in the system would occur.

I hope this answers your question.

Good Afternoon!

I wanted to inquire as to what the various policies are out there regarding a transfer course which changes credit hours between the time the student initially completed the course and then retaking it at the same institution.

For  example, a student completes a 3 credit course and decides to retake the course at the same institution but it is now 4 credits or vice versa. What is your policy:

*         Follow what the sending institution includes or excludes on the transcript?

*         Exclude the lesser grade received regardless of credit hours?

*         Exclude the lesser grade only if it was the lesser amount of credit?

Thank you for responding!
