Omitting Study Abroad Credits Above 150 Education Requirement

Hi Everyone,

I am applying to take the CPA exam in New York. I have completed my education requirements, and have 165 hours. However, 6 of those were from a study abroad. Since I would meet the 150 requirement even without these 6 hours, do I need to submit a transcript from my foreign university? I really do not want to go through the hassle of having my foreign transcript translated and reviewed since these credits do not even matter for my requirement (they aren’t even business related). Will my application get flagged because there is a school listed on my home university transcript that I haven’t sent in an official transcript for, or will they just check that I have the 150 from my home university and let me slide?
Thanks in advance!
