Does Chamberlain look at CGPA or only CGPA from courses that are transferable?


Hello Everyone,

I want to apply to Chamberlain, however, I don't have the best CGPA. I started my first years in a CC taking random courses assigned by my advisors and because I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in and was young I did not perform well. I have been taking nursing pre-quisites and I've been getting A's and B's. I've been trying to raise my CGPA, however, most courses that I took my first year are still haunting me and they are not even relevant to nursing(ex, Business law, Finite mathematics). I really don't want to retake them. Will Chamberlain look at my overall GPA or just the courses that will transfer?
