Can you omit a CC course from transcript?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to help another hs mom with the transcript and her daughter has a D from French 101 at the local CC. Since this is just an elective, is it possible just to omit it from the transcript?

Also, it is possible they will hire a private tutor for French for the rest of this year. Would it be "legal" to include that course on her transcript?

Along the same lines, if she withdraws from a CC course, does that have to be included on the transcript?

THANKS in advance! Pamela

Not okay to leave off the class at the community college.  The places the daughter is applying to will want transcripts from any college she attended.  Not submitting the transcript can potentially allow the college to revoke the admission.  Don’t do this!

It is totally okay to put the class with the tutor on the transcript.  People do this all the time for foreign languages and many other things.

All official school transcripts have to be submitted, so they will get that info when she submits the CC transcript - so, since she was taking it dual enrollment, she still needs to include it on the high school transcript.  HOWEVER, as far as the high school transcript, she can approach this as a grade replacement situation.  She still lists the first D on the high school transcript, but also the A/B/C earned when redoing that course with a tutor, and only the replacement grade is included in the GPA.  High schools do that all the time.  Unfortunately, if the student doesn't retake the D course at the same CC to earn a higher score, the college level GPA will still be in the tank.  This is why people recommend starting college courses with one in which the student is likely to succeed.  If this student is currently in the French course and earning a D, and she can still withdraw for a grade of W, she should do it!   ETA:  A withdrawal doesn't have to be included in the high school transcript, but it will still show up on the CC transcript she's required to submit.

Far better to have a "W" on the community college transcript than a "D" or "F" -- so if the deadline to withdraw has not yet passed, I would go that route.

As far as "hiding" a grade by not putting it on a transcript. Yikes. Big-time negative consequences for that. As the previous poster said, you MUST submit ALL transcripts of schools in which you were enrolled when applying to a future college. So both the homeschool transcript AND the community college transcript must be submitted when applying to a future university. Failure to do so can lead to expulsion, and even potential stripping of a degree that was earned AND possibly having to repay scholarship money, if it is discovered later. SOOO NOT worth the risk.

And that community college transcript still needs to be sent in when applying to a future college -- even if the "W" is the ONLY course ever done at the college. And if completing the course with a tutor, that would be indicated on a separate Course Description document, not on the transcript itself. If dropping the course, then in the Course Description, you could say something like: "1.0 credit of French I through partial completion of FREN 101 at XYZ university as dual enrollment, plus ABC materials at home, and a tutor."

Thanks everyone for the quick responses! They are pretty much what I advised her, but I just wanted confirmation before proceeding (just in case there was a "loophole" I didn't consider...and there's not...).
