One other thing to consider is the potential effect on scholarships. Some colleges may consider your student a transfer if he/she has significant transfer credit from a junior college. Generally, 4-year institutions award far fewer scholarships to transfer students than to new (First Time in Any College) students. Best to check first with the 4 year institutions you will be considering after high school.

Thanks Lee for that straight answer. I now know we will just CLEP test what my daughter finishes each year, and then submit it, or not!
Ron is correct. Any dual enrollment credits over 11 hours will not be accepted at any out of state university. Within our state, there is no limit on hours and they will not hinder her freshman status. If she goes to an out of state college, she will get no credit and will possibly be penalized for any dual enrollment hours over 11. Ask each college you are considering.
Ron is correct, but only SOME colleges limit credits, and it's not ALL state colleges. Every college will have unique requirements and restrictions, so you have to check your own college choices. But it's not correct to say any credits over 11 hours will not be accepted by any out of state university - because that can vary a LOT even if it is your experience.
I assume we need to have one transcript that is the same and is sent to all the colleges we apply to...correct? It would be so nice to tailor the transcript but that seems like cheating and I assume we can't do that.
Mary, yes, one transcript for all the colleges. You can make it look just perfect for your top choice college, but use that same version for all the other schools as well.
