I decided to go ahead and e-mail all of the program directors to get the official report. I've also started pouring over the instructions a little more carefully. Word from Washington (Seattle) is that they want everything, including the high school community college transcripts. Here's what they said:
Hi Phoebe, Most people send us their community colllege transcripts as
well. We want a full record of your previous academic experience so
unless there is some reason why it's difficult to procure, the committee
would like to have those community college transcripts.
Also, I've found that University of Oregon has two different transcripts requirements--the Admissions Office asks for transcripts from colleges that you graduated from, but the Creative Writing Program wants transcripts from every college you've attended.
I'll continue to update you guys with official reports, although at this point, I'm thinking that it's safest for everyone to send everything, unless the program specifies otherwise (as in the case of Oregon or New Hampshire).
Hm...I just looked at Michener's website (UT Austin) and they say they want All transcripts, even for extension classes. And they say it in BIG RED INK. Crap!
I guess I'll post what I find out for the schools I'm applying to, besides the ones SweetJane's already contacted...I'm still not bothering for the college class I took in high school, though. It was only a dance class, and besides, these programs aren't asking for my high school transcripts.
