Yes colleges are able to see the grades for each subject that you are taking on your transcript and it is a very important factor!
Thank you ! Are colleges allow to see the grades for each semester or they can only see the final grades? Hanna K.
Usually it would be the final grade that is seen on your transcript Ari Hagarty
Thanks!!!Also, do most colleges only look at the weighted gpa? Hanna K.
Yes they would look at the weighted GPA. Ari Hagarty
So let’s say if I only took several ap classes in junior and senior year,does that mean college admission officers won’t look at freshmen and sophomores year grades? Hanna K.
No Admissions Counselors will still look at your grades from your freshman and sophomore year. Ari Hagarty

Yes, all the classes you have take during high school the college will see it on the transcript, this includes if you switch or transfer from one school to another as well as your AP and Honor class plus the score for the test if you have taken it. But normally you have to sign a consent for release of your transcript or ask your school counselor and/or admission office to review with you to make sure everything is correct before releasing.

Hi Hanna,

Yes, as a former comprehensive application review reader for the University of California we are able to view the grade for each subject course you take in high school. Also, if you are taking college courses in high school it is important to include those in your college application as well. A lot of colleges, look for over-achieving students who take advantage of those resources at their high school, especially college courses that are taken during high school.

Hi Hanna, yes all classes you took in high school will be shown on your transcript which will be sent to the colleges. It is a very important factor for college, but colleges are not just looking for good grades. Besides grades, your involvement in school and the leadership position you take on from clubs would play a role too. It best to be a well-rounded student then to be someone that only has good grades. Hope that helps!

Hi, Hanna!

If you're not familiar with what your high school transcript looks like, I'd recommend getting an unofficial copy from your high school counselor or from your student information system if you're given that capability. High school transcripts can differ in what they post on their transcripts, although the final grade is always present. A year-long course, for example, may have the mid-year grade listed - which is particularly helpful for college admissions offices that want to see how your senior year is faring.

It's also good to be sure that the transcript is accurate and that there are no errors in the courses you took or the grades that you made and grade point calculation. I encourage my students to get a copy of their transcripts upon the completion of junior year, as this is the transcript that will be used by institutions in making an admissions decision (depending on when you apply).

As far as grade point averages go, most institutions have their own way of calculating GPAs. Some will pull out specific courses, others will add coefficients to certain classes (similar to weighting). How they do this is not usually for public consumption. Taking courses that are interesting and meaningful to you and doing the best that you can in them is the best advice that I can give to that end. As much as you can, enjoy your high school learning experiences!

All the best --

The answer is yes colleges are able to see the grades you got in all your classes in high school, however, they can only see your final grades not your fluctuations throughout the year.

It is very important to stay on top of your academics, especially if the college you want to attend is very crucial with academics. Don't get too worked out over freshman and sophomore year, however, the main years being looked at are your most important years

Junior and Senior year are the two most important year of high school because this is when you begin to focus on where you want to attend school so be mindful about your grades and organizing other credentials!
