What happens if I do not state all colleges attended?
I am transferring from dallas county community college to the university of texas next fall. I attended collin county about 10 years ago, and my gpa was terrible, I was working 80 hours a week and just could not do it all. Now I have a 3.8 gpa from dcccd and want to transfer, BUT, I did not tell dallas county I have previously attended collin county. When I transfer if I don't tell them at UTA that I have credits at collin county will they know? I hate that I was not honest, I just wanted a fresh start. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Most HR managers are pretty ignorant so tell them what you want and it will never come back up again! believe me, One job I had was just a joke! I was laid off and had nothing to do so I sent out high power resumes in cities I wanted to visit and believe me I was flown ALL over the US. If they only knew I was a drop... More

As far as I know it's kind of your deal to transfer your credits. I don't think they go around looking for your past and such, as long as your current college was okay it seems the transition will go smoothly as well.

No, they will not find out, but it won't be much of an issue if you did let them know because your recent GPA is high.

I don't think they would know, as long as none of your transcripts have "transferred credits" or anything from Collin. If you don't need any of the credits from Collin County, and you redid all of them at Dallas, UT will probably never know about your fresh start... More

It depends on what they asked in the application process. If they asked you to list all colleges attended, then you could be expelled if it is discovered that you didn't list them all. Chances that they will find out, however, are pretty slim. If they didn't ask you to reveal all, you are under no obligation to list... More

Did they explicitly say to list all colleges attended? If not you're fine, but if they did you could get into trouble if they find out. You're better off being honest. Most schools will take notice that you've improved and look at your most recent GPA rather than get hung up on what you did 10 years ago. They are... More

You'll be alright, unversities have a lot on their plates with thousands of students. As long as there is no tiny fine print about prejury-you can disclose what you want.

my thinking is that you should really be honest about it. honesty is always the best way to go, even if it does hurt you in the end. most schools will not even care to look at your grades from that long ago and i doubt it would have any negative effect on you. Also, be aware that if UTA does somehow find out they... More
