If the error above appears for your Academic page, it means that you have entered more than 6 courses for the same course type in the same grade level.
For example, this error would appear if you entered 7 classes in 11th grade with the “Course Type” of “Other”.
To resolve this error, follow these steps:
- Go to the Academic page.
- Under Coursework, count the classes entered for each Course Type (e.g., English, Foreign Language, Other, etc.) in a specific grade level to identify which Course Type has more than 6 entries.
- Once the Course Type with more than 6 entries has been identified, delete the extra entries OR correct the Term of the entry, depending on how the course appears on your transcript.
Usually we see this error when students enter “Course Type” as “Other” for more than 6 classes.
Remember that we are most interested in the core academic courses you have taken. If you have included more than 6 courses per year labeled as "Other" under Course Type, remove courses as necessary in order to meet the limit. We will also have your full transcript to refer to as needed.
