I have a question. Lets say i went to usc in california. But got Cs and my gpa was 2.5. If i transfer to another college and they dont accept my credits and i have to redo them and get As does that mean i have a 4.0 or will those Cs follow me for the rest of my life? And my so called 4.0 will be a 3.2 because of my previous grades at usc were averaged in even though they didnt get transfered.

Your grades are what they are and they are part of your cumulative GPA.

That said, GPA is in the eye of the beholder (so to speak) and the USC grades may show on a new transcript as something like, "Other college GPA." Various schools and institutions have their own policies regarding how grades are treated and how GPAs are calculated.

I did not transfer my credits from the previous college I attended. It's your choice.

Also, colleges require a certain GPA to allow you to transfer in, or sometimes before you can change campuses within that same institution. Check whether 2.5 is high enough. Sometimes you have to stay where you are and bring your GPA up before you can transfer out.

I do not know of any systematic checking but it isn't something I've thought about or looked into. But even if there isn't, it's a small world. And computers have made it smaller. It is pretty easy to get information.

You might get away with it. Some people do for varying lengths of time. Bad grades are much easier to recover from than ethical issues are, especially in nursing.

Among the options: pick a school that doesn't count those grades in the gpa that matters.... like song (music?, tune?) said, some never count it for anything. Mine uses cummulative gpa as a threshhold for looking at a nursing application but once past that bar it is totally irrelevent. We need a cummulative 2.5 to get the application in the right pile, after that it is the gpa of the listed prereq classes, and even then, only the last time it was taken counts.

Another option is to work your way out. You have only one semester of a 2.5, it won't take many semesters of good grades to bring that up.

How 'bout you just be an honorable person and own to your failures just as you claim your successes?
