Universities use a combination of unweighted, weighted, or capped GPAs. Some universities include high school freshman year grades for admission calculations, and others do not. Usually, Universities do not include grades earned in courses like P.E. Universities also consider curriculum rigor and GPA trends across high school years. Some universities focus on classes related to the major you are applying for admission selection. Some university systems ignore senior year grades for admission decisions, but others consider senior first semester grades. Welcome to the GPA world of college applicants.
Below are twelve semesters of your high school years (freshman to senior - remember most universities ignore senior year GPA for admission decision). Fill courses for each semester. If you have not done any courses (or yet to do) for any semester, skip it and move on to next semester. You can plan ahead by adding courses that you expect to do and add hypothetical grades to create various "what-if" scenarios and know how your overall GPA will look like. Read Less ➞

In holistic admission process that Univesities currently follow, there is strong consideration of rigor of the courses behind your GPA. One way to measure rigor is by considering the number of Advanced Placement, Honors and Dual Enrollment course work done (of course, based on availability at your school).
