Information
The version 3.2.2 was available! (April 21, 2019)
The mod is compatible with the patch of April 19, 2019 (PC Version 1.51.77.1020).
A new major - science was available for the patrons on my Patreon site. (May 12, 2019)

Changes in Version 3.2.2

The 4/19 patch fixed a string bug so the group of STBL in my objects were changed to 0x8000000.
2. Some Missing Messages of University Career (Bug Fix)
Some messages of university career were missing, such as one when getting the job and an hour before leaving the university. Now they work properly. In addition, the career tuning and its simdata were updated to prepare for adding a new major/faculty.

Changes in Version 3.2.1
1. No Name/Description of the Diplomas (Hot Fix)
The names/descriptions of the diplomas were missing because the group of STBL was changed to 00000000 in April 16's patch. But now it works properly.

1. A New Combined Lot Type "All Majors in University" (New Feature)
A new combined lot type "All Majors in University" was added. All students can go to one university whose lot type is "All Majors in University".

3. Traditional Chinese Translation (Update)
The traditional Chinese translation was updated thanks to Miaow-CC.

4. A GPA1 or 2 Student's Problem on the Graduation Day (Bug Fix)
A GPA1 or 2 student automatically went to the rabbit-hole on the Graduation Day so they couldn't go to the university lot on that day. Now they can go to the university or the rabbit-hole on Graduation Day.
5. Away-Interaction Icon Problem of Music Student (Bug Fix)
The away-interaction icon was a fine-arts major icon. Now it is a music major icon.

1. Introduction
I like GetToCollegeMod very much. I heard the original creator “simmythesim” semi-retired from modding but I didn’t want the mod outdated yet. So I updated the mod for December 2015’s patch at first. Since then, I've been updating the mod on my Tumblr site "Everyday Life in Sims World" for GetToCollegeModV2. For GetToCollegeModV3, I finally got a permission from the original creator "simmythesim" so I can upload here Mod The Sims. Thank you, simmythesim!

2. Mod Description
GetToCollegeMod introduces a college system to the Sims 4. After your sim becomes a young adult or older, the sim can go to the university using EA’s active career mechanism (requires Get To Work Expansion Pack) as well as Zerbu’s GoToSchoolMod which is for children and teens. The original description of simmythesim is on the MTS site.

2.1 Majors
A student sim can chose a major from three majors - Music, Fine Arts and Physical Education.
The start level (GPA) is affected the final level of high school. GPA4.0 for high school grade A, GPA3.0 for grade B and C, GPA2.0 for grade D and F. If a sim started with YoungAdult or older, it is GPA3.0.

2.2 Weekly Schedule in the College Life
Sunday … Holiday
Monday … Activity Day
Tuesday … Lecture Day
Wednesday … Activity Day
Thursday … Lecture Day
Friday … Presentation Day
Saturday … Holiday

The First Day … The student sims get to know their classmates.

Activity Days … The student sims do things that train them for the real world - Working out for Physical Education, painting / woodworking for Fine Arts, and playing instruments for Music.

Lecture Days … The student sims learn from their hopefully awesome professor. Goals for these day involve Watching the Lecture and Asking Questions. For Watching the Lecture, you should click on the Podium (a podium for your university), then select “Watch” interaction. For Asking Questions. you should click on another sim, then select “Ask Questions“ interaction in Friendly category.

Presentation Day … The student sims give their presentation to their class. If your sim doesn’t study for the presentation day, he or she will lose a lot of performance, likewise, if your sim studies before it, they’ll get a huge boost to their grade. For giving your presentation, you should click on the Podium (a podium for your university), then select “Give Presentation“ interaction.

Graduation Day … This is the last day, say your goodbyes to your friends and enemies on this day. This takes place on Day 20 (default), which can be change to Day 5, 10 or 15 by the mod option file in "SchoolDays_SelectOnlyOne" folder. You have to talk with a sim before saying your goodbye to the sim.

If you want to see how many days your student sim went to college so far, please use my Show/Search Sim Info Mod, which shows “active / all days worked” on the Career Info dialog. Technically, your student sim can graduate after all days worked is 19 (the length of school term minus one) or greater. So your student sim can go to the rabbit hole until all days worked is 19 but at least the sim have to go to the University LOT after that to graduate and get a hidden graduation trait.

A student sim will get the following diploma and reward based on their GPA at the end of Graduation Day.
  • GPA1 ... No diploma
  • GPA2 ... No diploma
  • GPA3 ... A diploma in their major
  • GPA4 ... A diploma in their major + 20,000 simoleons
  • GPA5 ... A diploma in their major + 100,000 simoleons
In addition, a student sim will automatically quit the university at the end of Graduation Day.

After the graduation, your sim gets their qualifications to start at level 4 of their dream job - Entertainer Career and Business Career for Music major, Painter Career and Business Career for Fine Arts major, Athletic Career and Business Career for Physical Education major.

3. Tip From simmythesim
One of the most important things to do in University is to study. To actually study, purchase the “University Supplies” from the Bookshelf or the Build Catalog and study to your heart’s content! Warning: Like real life, studying takes a loong time, and takes about - I think four hours, so your sim will have many sleepless nights in their quest for the highest grade! If they don’t study, even if they perform well in their tasks at the University, they’ll get worse and worse grades. So please, make your sims study!

4. Installation, Update and Uninstallation
4.1 Install
To install, unzip the downloaded file to your mods folder. The mod needs to be placed directly in /Mods or one level below that (see the screenshot).
You have to chose the length of school term from “SchoolDays_SelectOnlyOne“ folder - the unchosen option files must be removed.
If you don't use Zerbu's mods , delete "CompatibilityWithZerbuMods_IfNeeded" folder. If you use Zerbu's mods, please read the configuration in #5.
The mod requires The Sims 4 Get To Work Expansion Pack.

If you use the original version (by simmythesim) or version 1.x or 2.x of Get To College Mod, no problem. Just delete the old mod files. Your student sims can continue to go to the current university. Oh, don't forget to delete 2 cache files (The Sims 4/localthumbcache.package and The Sims 4/cachestr/spotlight_xx-xx.package) too.

4.2 Update

5.1 GoToSchoolMod
Compatible. You can use both mods at the same time.
