    Do applicants to USAFA need to submit semester 1 high school grades?

    I can't imagine that admissions wouldn't want to see those grades. And yet, DS's hs sent his several times, but they do not show in the portal as being received. DS contacted them and was told it wasn't important. BTW, he was told the same thing about his inaccurate GPA.....hard to believe but how do you argue....

    USAFA Admission has way of doing things. That's how things are.

    My admissions counselor said they were, I sent them in, and they were in my portal shortly after. Just send in an updated transcript

    I was under the impression that you needed to send them only if asked? You do mean 1st semester Senior Year correct? That is considered 7th semester grades.

    The 7th-semester grade was required by USAFA.

    Was it a message they would send you when they requested 7th semester grades?

    I called admissions today and they said they did not need them. If they request grades is that a good thing?

    It does say in the instructions to send the fall semester transcripts as soon as they are available.
    Interesting when a call to Admissions says "they are not needed", and portal still states that all items are complete.
    What gives?

    My DS had the same issues last year and he sent in the grade to fallow all the instructions. His saying was I rather sent the grades in(It only took him 2 min to ask the school to send the grade) and later the admission asking for it.
