What GPA can I put on the Common App?

Hi! Here is my question:

Can I use my Senior year's First Quarter or First Semester GPA on the Common App?

My current GPA is not the best and I am wondering if including the First Quarter of senior year would improve my cumulative GPA for the Common App.

Thank you!

it depends on what its asking if it asks you your current cumulative GPA then unfortunately you would have to submit your current cumulative GPA from 9th 10th and 11th. however if a certain college requires or offers a space to enter your current senior year GPA the absolutely do so. to answer your question most likely it is asking for your cumulative from your first three years and you should use your GPA as such.
