How do credits transfer?

  1. Dec 23, 2011 #1
    I'm currently a high school student, but have several credits from a local university, mostly for math and some from engineering. If I want these credits to transfer to where ever I end up going to college, does the credit alone transfer (by which I mean does it simply count towards fulfilling requirements), or will the grades from these classes end up actually factoring into my college GPA?

    Generally, your GPA at a particular college/university includes only courses that you take at that institution. If you later apply for graduate school, they will generally want you to submit transcripts from all the colleges/universities that you have attended, so they will see all your grades in any event.
