If you transfer does your GPA from the first school carry over?

When you transfer the GPA from your original institution is not carried over to the new one. Courses that you’ve completed generally transfer if you have a C or higher in the course, and it’s consistent with courses offered at your new school. The credits for that course transfer, but not the grade. You begin your GPA with the courses you’ll complete there. However, if you apply to transfer again, or if you apply to graduate school, they’ll want to see all your previous transcripts.
