Do you have to transfer ALL credits?

  1. I've attended two community colleges; one right out of high school, took 57 credits w/ a 2.9 GPA and one currently that I'll probably be able to maintain a 4.0 GPA at.

    I'm currently relocating to the Boise area and will need to take some more pre-reqs before I apply to nursing programs. Is it ok to only transfer my transcripts from the college where I have a high GPA? I'd need to retake a few English/elective classes but I'm feeling like that's a better option to be a good candidate for nursing programs.

    Should it matter: my low grades were in things like French and communication, not math and sciences.

    I'm not sure about transferring credits but when applying to nursing programs they usually ask for all your transcripts from all your college attendance to be submitted, so they will be seeing all your college work, including that 2.9 gpa, anyway.

    It is grounds for disqualification if they ever find out, but if you're willing to take the risk then go for it. My friend left out a transcript (unintentionally) when he applied to nursing school but he was able to graduate and everything.
