Will college classes(dual-enrollment) count more credits towards your GPA?

Okay so I am enrolled in two community college classes for this summer and I read that both classes will be counted as APs. While calculating my GPA on this site, there is a huge difference in what my GPA will be depending on the amount of credits. My course syllabus for the college says both classes are 4 credits. Will it count 4 credits towards my high school GPA or is that just something for my college transcript?

I’m not sure how helpful this will be, but at my school, which might be different, the dual enrollment classes I’ve taken are worth one high school credit and four college credits, but those are two separate entities. Hope this helps!
