Question Half credit transfer between medical schools

Hello everyone,

I noticed a few more threads with transfer credit questions but I couldn't find what I needed. So during Medical School I transferred to another Medical School after 2 years. From the USMLE step1 registration I know that I have to put in the credits that I transfered. Well pretty much I transfered everything so it will take some time. Now my problem is this: I had my transcripts (form Europe) evaluated by WES (World education services) and some of the credits show up as half points (e.g 2.5).
And when I try to enter them in the system it doesn't let me (it says numbers only). Did anyone else have this problem? Are your credits with half points as well? I'm not sure how WES created these credits, as I only have course hours, etc on my transcripts.

I'm just wondering if there is a mistake somewhere.
Thank you for your help

Hey there,
I have gone through this transfer of credit thing, for me, my college didn't mention it in my transcript, so I had to bring two letters, the first was from the college I attended for one year, and it contained confirmation that I did atttend their college and the credit hours and the scores I got, and the second was from my college (the one which issued my diploma) confirming that I have transferred credits for that year.
So if the transfer of credit is mentioned in your transcript, I think you are going to need only the one from the other college that you have attended.
Regarding the WES, I really don't know about that, but you can contact ECFMG directly (by phone or email), and you will find them very helpful.
Good Luck

You can round up the number. For example if it is 2.5 make it 3 credits.

Hi,
Thank you everyone!
I got an e-mail from ECFMG and that's what they said: to round up the numbers. And I definitely hope that I'll only need the transcripts from my graduating School , as my file was completely transferred and I'm pretty sure that the first school doesn't have my transcripts anymore. We'll see how it goes...
Thank you again,
