Question on self-reported transcripts [#permalink] New post 11 Jul 2011, 09:28
Specifically for Harvard, the application states:

Use this section to electronically report academic transcripts for every undergraduate and graduate institution you have attended (full- or part-time) that has contributed to the granting of a degree. We do not require transcripts for courses that did not contribute to a degree. Please put any additional courses you would like us to know about in the Non-Degree Coursework area of the "Graduate and Other Coursework" section. Do not send a paper or original copy of your transcript to our office during the application process. It will be discarded.

I was Business/Pre-Med in college and took a lot of upper division biology, chemistry, and physics classes. When I graduated, my degree was in Finance and those science classes were not requirements. Do I need to include them? I called the admissions office but the person I talked to didn't seem to know.

Thanks for the info

Did the credits from those classes go toward the overall credit requirement for the degree?

They didn't. I could have never taken them and still graduated with the same degree.

Here is how I interpret this:

If you took the classes at your "degree-granting" institution before your degree was granted, you should include them. So if you were in school for 5 years and have 150 hours, 30 of which did nothing, you still have to report those 30 hours because you did them at your degree-granting institution.

I don't think you are allowed to pick and choose which courses you want to report; you have to report the whole transcript.
