I'm trying to fill out the UC app and I was also looking at a scholarship app and everywhere it says that they want me to list all CCs attended and average my GPA. Is there a way to get around that since I really don't want and can't use any of the classes from my first CC because I failed most of them.
No, any college application will require you to list all colleges attended and send transcripts. They check your past college enrollment here: National Student Clearinghouse
Since there is a span of time between your initial poor gpa and your current college grades, transfer schools will see this and take it into consideration. Also, can't you address your renewed interest and energy in academics in an essay or additional info section (I'm not familiar with the UC app)? You might also want to ask your question on the UC Transfer subforum, members there may have more input.
