Need help with transfer credits!
So I'm transferring to Mac's Engineering 1 program, and in my acceptance email I was told I receive transfer credits for the courses Econ 1B03 and Geog 1* (*no direct equivalent).

I thought this meant that I don't need to take any electives this year, but when I checked my degree audit on MUGSI, it said that I have 3 outstanding elective credits. The Econ 1B03 course is listed, but the Geog 1 course is listed under the heading "COURSES THAT WERE NOT ASSIGNED TO A REQUIREMENT".

Does this mean I only get the one elective course transferred, meaning I have to take one more at Mac?
Also, can anyone point me in the direction of who I can contact to get some of these questions answered?

Hmm you should be able to use it as a transfer. I think the problem is that because it didn't translate to an equivalent course it didn't fit in the engineering electives requirements in your degree audit.
You should talk to Sally Williams. She's the Engineering 1 academic advisor. She should be able to solve the problem easily since geography is listed in the engineering electives list.
