Is there any kind of statute stating that one MUST transfer college credits? To digress, I am moving in a few days to another state where I will take up residency. There is a community college close by that I wish to attend, but I would prefer, if possible, that my previous college record, from a university in another state, not affect my continuing college record. Hence, I did very poorly my first year in college, but my high school transcript is very, very good. I know that most, if not all, colleges require transcripts from all other institutions attended, but does that neccessarily entail that any grade I made then would be encompassed into the GPA of that college? Does credit transfer work that way? It was my understanding, correct me if I am wrong, that GPA is used only for determining acceptance when transfering from one institution to another. Is credit transfer just that, transfer of college credits only? Would any of the actual "grades" (or GPA) that I made at the prior institution apply to my stay at that community college? Does it depend on individual college policy? I would greatly appreciate any help in this matter. Thank you.

No idea what the policies are at your school, but I think most ( or all) mean the credit hours. When you transfer to a school your GPA does not transfer with you...just the credit hours.
