PLEASE HELP! In Progress Courses in CASPA

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! 

I have a question that I HOPE someone on here has experienced and can help me out with an answer! As you know, many schools allow for one or two prereqs to be in progress when applying, but some require all to be completed prior to CASPA submission. My question is, if I put all my info into CASPA and say my course is in progress then submit to the programs that allow in progress submissions, can I then change that course to say completed or indicate that its not in progress any more and submit to the program that requires all to be completed once I'm done with the course? Or is there some way that they would know its completed, because the transcript submitted prior won't have that in progress course on there and I don't know if I need to request another transcript be sent to CASPA. Or, if one program has already been submitted and in the process of being verified then it voids all access to any of the academic materials that I would edit/add for other programs that have not yet been submitted. Would I need to contact the program and directly send them another copy of the transcript showing completion of the course? I know many programs say not to send them anything directly. I've contacted CASPA and they aren't answering my question to my satisfaction, but I'm sure one of you lovely people can.

Thank you in advance!

If you submitted to the programs that allow in-progress courses while your class was in-progress, I would say to resend the transcript with the completed course to CASPA. Once CASPA receives the transcript, see if the course automatically updates from in-progress to completed. If it doesn't, call CASPA and ask them if there is a way to change it. If there isn't, call the schools and tell them your situation, and ask them what they would like you to do: send the transcript to them or just submit your application with the new transcript in CASPA (even if CASPA still says in-progress, they can see you completed the class with your new transcript)

Why don't you contact the program and let them know of the situation? Or contact CASPA?

      I could not find a feed for Indiana State so I decided to start one to talk with those that may apply there this cycle.

      I played division 1 football for 4 years. Can this be added under the experiences section in CASPA? It really helped to shape me as a person and also the teamwork aspect of the PA profession is something that really appeals to me because of my background in the sport, so I think it should be included but just wanted to get input from others.

      Hi everyone,
      1) I am new to this forum and I have a question pertaining to transcript entry. I just graduated from college (BS in Psychology), but prior to entering university, I was dual-enrolled with a local community college while I was still in high school. I have 21 credits that were taken prior to entering my freshman year as well as 6 additional credits taken from the same community college the summer after my freshman year. I added that community college to allow myself to manually add my classes to that transcript, but I am not sure what to put for "academic status" since most of those credits were taken prior to my freshmen year at university and the drop down does not have a "pre-college" option. Does this make sense? 
      2) After watching the video on the sidebar, I am also a bit confused on what to do since I retook a course. Do I manually add both grades into my transcript, or just add the first grade, and then click to review and finalize my transcript, and then add the new grade I got when prompted if a retook any classes? 
      Thank you in advance for any help!
