Will colleges see my grades/work at all in the 12th grade?

My GPA is a 2.69 right now, but my high school counselor found spaces in my schedule to allow me to retake some of the classes I didn't do so well in, but for the grades to be replaced I have to complete both semesters of the courses themselves. I'm not entirely sure if colleges consider those changed grades if they don't actually change until the end of 2nd semester. I know the California State University application deadline is on November 30th, but this is my last chance to really improve my admissions chances and I want to make sure the colleges I apply to can see all the work I'm putting in to get myself into a better position for acceptance.

They will see what classes you are going to take your senior year as you report it. (At least on common app I can’t tell you about UC application) Also your school might send out a mid year (after winter break) report saying Micah got 4 As in subjects a,b,c,d and 4 Bs in subjects W,X,Y,Z.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification.

Thank you for the clarification, but I'm a little confused about the mid year report. Does the mid-year report from my high school allow colleges to consider the grades that were replaced in final GPA calculation? Or is it more of an update on how I did in those classes in the first semester? And is the report something my counselor sends to colleges directly?

Honestly I have no clue but I believe it could be used for GPA and I’m kinda confident that the counselor uploads it to the application which you already submitted so all colleges you applied to will get it. Again this is what I believe so sorry if any info is wrong.

The mid-year report is for first semester only. Your colleges will be sent a final report, including second semester grades, but that will be after most decisions have been made.
