Are there any colleges that won't grant transfer students eligibility for admission if they have over a certain number of credits from a 2-year college?

I was screwed with the opposite last year (I had 88 transferable (quarter) credits, and this college required at least 90), and I want to make sure this won't happen again.

Is it different for those attending 2-year colleges, though? Would it be different if you have too many credits from a 2-year than from a 4-year?

Thank you.

Occasionally they will only transfer a certain number of credits and you will have to re-take courses but I have never heard of any college that won't let you transfer because you have too many.

I've never heard of a school refusing students based on too many units, but there are limits on how many they will accept towards your degree. When I transfered the maximum I was allowed to bring was 70 semester units.

Another thing concerning transfer units: even if you, say, transfer half or more of the units required for your degree, the school will still probably require a certain number of units to be completed at their institution, even if it brings your total over the amount needed to graduate.

Good luck!

A few do. Check with the institutions you are interested in applying to.
