Question about College Transcripts

edited October 2012 in College Admissions
My D. has done college credit courses in some subjects not offered in her school district. These are listed on her school transcript, but are not part of her GPA, nor did she use them to advance to the next level course at school.
Should she send the university transcripts of these courses to the colleges she is applying to?
I ask this question specifically because some of the schools she is applying to discourage a lot of supplementary material. We do not know if these college transcripts fall in that category.
Thank you in advance for your inputs.

    Yes, under Colleges & Universities after listing coursework, the CA states:
    If you indicated that a transcript is available, please have an official copy sent to your colleges as soon as possible.

    These are considered part of the academic record, not supplemental materials.

    Thank you entomom.
    Would you also know about the University of California schools that are not on the common app? D. is considering one of those.

    Sorry, I'm not that familiar with the UC app, hopefully others here will know. If not, give them a call.
