Do I Need All My Transcripts to Go to a New College?


Dear Steve,

I’m in a huge dilemma… I attended a community college in fall 2010 to spring 2011… I then transferred to a private university (Millikin University) from the fall of 2011 to spring 2012 and dropped out (young and foolish) I ended up attended Northwest Missouri State in 2013 to 2014. Decided to join the navy that year so I didn’t finish…. Decided today 2018 to finish what I started, but the private institution won’t release my transcripts to anybody without paying them the $2000 and they won’t accept a payment plan. They told me they need the money in full.

Could I use the same method as I did with Northwest Missouri State and just use my community college transcripts to transfer to another college even if that means starting over with my credits?



Dear Dshawn,

There is nothing that would prevent you from doing that, just understand you won’t get credit for the classes without a transcript.
