One of the benefits of coming to a new school from a community college is that while many of your credits may transfer, your GPA will not. If your GPA was strong at your community college, don’t worry. The record of your academic excellence will stand on your transcript. If, though, you didn’t get started on as strong a foot as you would have liked, no worries there, either. You’ll be able to receive credit for most, if not all, of your completed courses while starting fresh with a clean academic slate.

The best part? Every course at SNHU was designed with transfer students in mind.

In a manner of speaking, yes. Your grades at your original institution stay on record with that school. Any time you request a transcript from that school, the grades and the GPA will still be there.
So, if you performed well and want to ensure that your strong performance stays on the record even after you transfer, you’re in luck. If, however, your GPA isn’t quite where you know it could be, don't worry. While your credits can transfer, your previous grades won't factor into your new GPA or show on your Southern New Hampshire University transcript. You essentially get the best of both worlds.

Most students have to complete a suite of general education courses at the beginning of any degree. Those courses may include writing, math, statistics and social science. Often, these general education credits transfer to a new program. This is especially true for course where you earned grades of C or higher.
At Southern New Hampshire University, we have designed our general education courses with community colleges in mind.
