Grades and Attended College Section

Recommended Posts

After graduating undergrad I went to take a few courses required for PA school at community college. I took intro to psychology, intro to sociology, and human anatomy. During the semester my grandfather died and affected my mental health leading to my academics suffering. One year later to retook these courses at another community college and did better. My questions:

Do I still need to input the first community college I attended even though I retook the classes at another community college and did better a year later?

How will this affect my caspa gpa? 

Do course titles have to be titled exactly as they appear on the official transcript or would the title from the school course catalog be acceptable?

Yes, you need to list every single class w/o exception even if you retook it. 

Yes it will effect your Caspa GPA. It will not cancel out and the grades will be averaged. 

They have to appear exactly as they do on your official transcript. 


You can pay to have your transcripts input by their professional service (this is what I did) but keep in mind two things. 

1. They won't start the progress until your are completely don't and submit for verification. 

2. Add your expected, planned classes prior to submitting or you have to wait even longer. 


Feel free to DM for any questions.
