*Keep in mind that senior grades count towards your final admission into college. Be sure to carefully read your letter of conditional acceptance/admission. Some letters will state that you cannot get a semester grade below a C in your classes. Some may say that you must maintain a similar gpa with your final grades as the one you had when you were accepted. Failure to do this could result in the campus rescinding/pulling their offer of admission. Should you know you are receiving a grade below a C, it is your responsibility to notify the campus. Your transcript should not be a “surprise” to the college admissions staff. That could also cancel your admission.  Be careful!!
