Nothing will happen if you do this. The colleges you apply to don't go looking to see if you were registered in any other colleges over the years. They have no way to do this anyway. There is no equivalent of a credit report that exists for college attendance--at least none that I know it. Don't be concerned about it. As far as you're concerned--what old community college? Hope that sets your mind at ease.

In certain cases if Financial aid communicates with admissions, that may sink you.
I know someone who lost a professional license (not nursing) five years after graduation and into practice because it was discovered that they had withheld a bad transcript. Some mean-spirited SOB turned them in to get ahead. The college yanked the persons degree (fraud) and the licensing agency had no choice but to follow suit.
That being said I know other folks who have "hidden" transcripts and not a thing happened to them.
Remember, we live in an information age. Any idiot or joker could find out your whole life story with just a few pieces of information. GUARD YOUR PRIVATE INFORMATION!
Example, do a Google search using your allnurses username! Google you real name. Heck,Google you telephone number! Hmmmm.....
Do what you feel your conscience will allow and act being able to accept the possible penalties your actions may bring.
Conduct all you affairs this way.Last edit by sunnyjohn on Nov 9, '05

Times and locations change. In the past, schools never cared one way or the other. You simply attended any school you wanted and transfered courses only if you wanted to.l
