my friend is applying to an in-state maryland college. he did really well in high school, but poorly at the community college. he is going to apply to towson and send in only his high school transcript. will they have any way of finding out his community college grades if he doesn't turn them in?

Pretty sure they can, I have heard of people being caught for not revealing all college info when applying to a new school.

I think he's probably best off telling them about the college, but he doesn't have to submit the transcript. I was in a similar situation, and I didn't.

He's probably going to have to explain what he was doing betw high school and now.

My gut says its possible. You'd have to look at the application. Don't they ask for all transcripts? Also, how does he plan to explain what he's been doing since high schoool?

If he experienced some sort of hardship (illness, family issues, etc) that affected his grades, he'd be fine as long as he explained that...Otherwise, I personally wouldn't do it esp. if he went to a MD community college.

Towson shouldn't be all that difficult to get into... Though I do know that few of my senior friends were rejected while getting into honors in UMD and others...

Hope your friend well. And I think transcripts are like criminal records that you have to list; you have to list them all?
