Question about high school dicipline
Answered

I got 3 days OSS my sophomore year for vaping and ISS 3 days also. I've never been in trouble again, so will this affect me as a senior applying to colleges? Will I be able to even get into college?

This would definitely be something to write about in the Additional Info section of your application. Write a genuine response explaining the story behind your suspension, and wrap up the explanation with how the experience shaped your character. If the response is genuine and shows personal growth, it would show maturity and potentially work to your advantage.

There will certainly be multiple colleges that would want you! Depending on your school, ISS may not even show up on the transcript. You could ask about if an OSS shows on the transcript, but you can still recover from that if it does. You can explain it and explain how you grew from the experience in a section on college applications.

These events will not greatly harm your chances of acceptance. They may not show up on your transcript, and if they do, you can explain the circumstances behind them in the discipline section of your applications. Highlight how these were isolated incidents and how you have taken steps to improve, and you will be set. Hope this helps!
