Do colleges need my high school transcript?

I dropped out of high school a year ago due to some traumatizing personal struggles; now, I'm 17 and I've gotten my GED. Though my SAT/ACT scores are decent (2250 and 34, might re-take them to improve), my high school transcript from my freshman/sophomore years is an appalling document filled with nothing but F's and the occasional D. I want to go to a university, but I'm afraid that they'll request to see my HS transcript and I'll have to resort to attending community college for two years, and quite frankly I'd rather put a bullet through my skull than have to go through with that. Will I need to provide my transcript or not? Please help me out, thank you.
