I’ve taken over 60 credit hours of community college classes at Santa Monica College, I’m about to start my senior year of high school. I was wondering how colleges will view my transcripts, my community college GPA is much higher than my high school GPA (3.85 cc GPA versus 3.1 high school unweighted, 7 AP classes and honors as well).

I’ve really enjoyed the classes at SMC and I’ve found the work more enjoyable in some ways. I just don’t know if my high school GPA keeps me out of reach for top universities. (I got 34 on the ACT). Thanks for your help!

I think schools will definitely notice your college credits so that may give you somewhat of an advantage, although, I do advice that you also work on your high school GPA as most selective schools only consider applicants with a 3.7 or 3.8 GPA(depending on the school). But your ACT score looks pretty good!

Ok thank you very much Chantel. I’ll focus on trying to have a strong fall GPA, to show an improvement. Thank you for answer!
No problem:) Goodluck!
