Well I'm in CA and here we have general ED. SO a requirment is forieghn language class. I did french in Highschool and it says you can use highschool language to fufill requirment. Will they also be using my highschool grade? Will that be in my collge gpa? I got b's but I would rather take language in college to obtain A's rather then have them use b's. But will they even be using the highschool grades for that matter?
The only grades that will affect your GPA at whatever college you're attending are the grades you earn in classes you take at that college.
If you transfer and then later want to go to graduate school, for example, they will look at the GPA of all the college classes you've taken at any college -- but they still won't use high school grades.
When they say you can use your high school language classes to meet a requirement, they just mean that if you have passed a class (or exam) that they consider equivalent to passing a college language class at a certain level, you don't need to take any more classes in that language at that level even if there is an official requirement that you take and pass a class at that level. So if you've already done work that they consider equivalent to passing French 102, 103, and 205 (those are made-up class numbers) and the school requires you to take language classes numbers 102, 103, and 205, you don't have to take any more language classes. If you need 102, 103, 205, and 206, you can jump right in and take 206. But the grades you got when you took the equivalent classes in middle school and/or high school are not going to affect your college GPA in any way.
