Course descriptions question


Recommended Posts

If is school is requesting course descriptions on the Common App, do you describe the courses for the senior year even though they are not completed yet?  I am impatient.  :)  I have a call into the University of Cincinnati but haven't heard back from them yet.  Thanks!

On my transcript, I used IP for courses that were in progress and PL for courses planned for spring of senior year.  Those codes went in place of a grade.

I wrote course descriptions for the courses that were in progress or planned.  If I didn't know what textbooks would be used, I just listed TBD.


When I did a Mid Year Report in the Common App, I included grades for the completed courses.  I had to do a switch of Statistics for Calculus 2 because of a schedule conflict, so I made the change on the transcript, wrote a quick course description for the new course and included a couple sentences explaining why the change.
