When you transer to CMSV, just be sure to transfer only the credits you need towards their nursing program, not your entire transcript. What I mean is, don't transfer the failing A&P grade.

I had a similar experience at BMCC, where I never transfered a low grade (a "C" in Intro Psych I had taken years ago at a different school) in a course that was needed for their program. I simply re-took the class at BMCC as if it were my first time, got an "A" and that's all that counted. I was told if I had transfered the class beforehand I would have been in trouble and I wouldn't have been able to reverse the transfer once it was done and they would have recognized the "C" grade. Sorry for being so wordy with my response, but I hope this makes sense to you.

Also, before you take all the courses at Lehman, make sure they are compatible and will transfer to CMSV before you waste your time.

Good luck.

I don't think they suppress any grades on your transcript. They usually send all your grades. You have to make sure that SMVC will accept your highest grade before you transfer there. There are other BSN programs, Molloy, LIU, Adelphi and others.

Oh, I didn't know you can choose what you want to transfer. I thought that everything will, including failing grades. Thank you so much for informing me.

I agree with Tab65. I never heard about transferring selected grades from your transcript. However, I do know that upon retaking a course at your school and getting a better grade, the grade will overwrite the bad grade when weighing on your GPA.. However, the bad grade will still be on your transcript, along with the better grade.

I don't know about CMSV doing that, but I do know that BMCC does that. You can request for them not to transfer a class or selected classes in, so that you can have the option to take the classes over so that it doesn't affect you GPA. It's mentioned in the nursing section for transfer students and when I called admissions they said a student of any major can request to have that done but only in the first semester when you transfer in.
