Hi everyone,

I realized that a lot of schools have something on their websites saying something like "you must have at least 28 credits and at most 33 credits from your home institution to transfer to x school"

I will have 31 credits by the time i complete 1L year but will be doing a program with my school that will give me an additional 3 credits for a total of 34. Does this mean that I'm ineligible to transfer or simply that the school will only recognize 33 transfer credits?

Thanks!

I would call the school to verify with them and if you can’t don’t do the program in my opinion or see if u can do it for no credit

That’s usually how many credits they will accept. You might lose a few and start with the max allowed at the new school. If that’s the case, I’d ask myself whether the program for credits that won’t transfer are worth it at that point, but it likely won’t foreclose you from transferring to that school.
