  • A question on college transcripts

    I attended five different colleges, so do I need to submit transcripts from all five colleges or only from the ones that I got degrees from (associates and bachelor)?

    If you have read any responses in this section you will have noted that full disclosure is a major issue. In light of that fact, Tell me what you think you should do

      When the background investigator starts generating your time-line, ALL educational endeavors will be VERY relevant. Having a bad semester academically won't amount to a hill of beans; an omission can amount to non-select or disqualification. Draw your own conclusion.

        What does the agency specifically say?

        This can be looked at several different ways and you are likely going to get several different opinions, but the bottom line is what the agency says- so ask them.

        That said- if you need a degree to qualify, list and submit the transcript that supports that degree, while listing all schools attended in the applicable blocks on your paperwork.

            OK, do this. Thus far, and not counting this epic, you've received five very cogent replies. Please review them, and behave accordingly. Good luck in your process.

              I just applied for a job where they asked for copies of all my college transcripts. This despite being a cop for more years than I want to admit. I think the Dead Sea Scrolls are newer than my college transcripts - if I can even find them.

              Moral of story: keep them, all of them.

                    Most (and I say "most) state/county boards of education will serve as a repository for not just operating schools, but also those that closed down.

                    I am aware of a few states that mandate a records retention policy for not just schools but also doctors, certain financial institutions, etc. So if the information you seek isn't available from the source, you can always try the state agency with oversight of the entity.

                    In Iowa's case that would be the Smithsonian since anything from his early years is protected as a historical artifact.

                      In Iowa the SCHOOL is required to preserve their records----no county boards of education in Iowa.

                      The state Department of Education just licenses teachers and collects data.

                      In reality in Iowa a school doesn't "go out of existence" They merge with other districts. THAT is a state law and of course the school district that absorbed my old school district is required to keep those transcripts.

                      The chiseled in stone transcript in my case would probably be stored somewhere. Accessing it would be the problem
