Courses that aren't accepted at 4 year collegesAnswered
I'm currently a sophomore and scheduling for my junior year. I've already picked out what I'm going to do after high school. The courses that are required at my school say that they will not be accepted at a 4-year college. Could that hurt my chances of getting into any "long-term" college? Or would my chances stay the same?

Hi, thank you for asking your question! I am a little bit confused, given that high school courses, not including AP and IB level courses, are usually not used to obtain college-level credit. So your high school saying that "[course credits] will not be accepted at a 4-year college" makes sense to me. Here is a blog post with more details about college-credit in high school that may help you out.
Not having college-credit from high school courses is totally normal and will likely not affect your chances of getting into a four-year university.
