Do I need to send a school transcript if I took one class? [#permalink] New post 20 Sep 2010, 13:48
I took 2 random courses at 2 different community colleges since graduation. One was a drawing class for fun, and one was an intro to computer graphics, again just because I was interested. Do I need to include these on my application and have transcripts sent? I won't be including on my resume. There was no degree involved for either and I got A's in both, just might seem silly to send.

Most schools ask for all transcripts. However, you probably would be fine not worrying about it. I did this when changing schools, I had gone one semester somewhere and the coursework wasn't relevant. Of course, if this was transferred to another school already and shows up on its transcript, they may wonder why you left it out.

I don't think there is any way for them to know unless you transferred it to a school that you are including. It will then show up on that school's transcript. It's probably free to send and you made an A so just include it :)

They were both taken after my undergrad degree, never transfered them or reported them anywhere really. Was just taking them for fun. I would rather not just for the added paperwork and time to track them down etc, but don't want them to ding me for leaving them off if I was supposed to include everything.

If that is the case, I don't really see how they would ever find out about them.

I've never heard of a university doing a background check. Maybe with all the shootings, they should :) Besides, I don't think a background check would uncover those classes. I think they will just verify what he listed.

I was in the same situation (I took a class at another school after I had alread graduated) so I asked the admissions officers at both schools I got into. I was told no need to include them. It never came up again, so I wouldn't worry about it.

i'm in the same boat, but I think it's just unneeded paperwork. My 2 As in the photography course post-undergrad... oh if only that factored into the UG GPA!

No school is going to ding you for forgetting to mention you got an A in a drawing class!

Since you will not include it on your resume thus don't worry about it. Take it as your personal skills and impress your employer just in case you need it.
