Can I Start College Over With My Transcript?

Written by Steve Rhode


Dear Steve,

I attended college 0ver 10 years ago. I would like to enroll in college as a freshman. I looked into ASU which has an earned admissions program and was advised I would still need transcripts from the previous college. I explained that I want to start as a freshman that the prev college was only regionally accredited and non of my credits earned even count.

Can I go back to school a first-time freshman without the transcript? Since my credits will not transfer anyway.



Dear Shawn,

I don’t see any reason why you can’t. Just don’t tell them about the other school.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
