Will colleges require second semester grades if I'm waitlisted?

For context, I’ve gotten all A/A+'s throughout my first 7 semesters of HS, and I’m wondering if my top choices (HYPSM in particular) will require mandatory reporting of my second semester grades senior year if I get waitlisted. Does anyone know if these colleges would require waitlisted seniors to submit such grades, or if there’s any possibility colleges might individually request them from me?

Not necessarily if you are offered a spot on the waitlist but every single school my D looked at and applied to required a final school report from all admitted applicants. Some schools may request the final report before deciding which WL applicants to offer admission to. Some students accept WL spots and don’t get offered admission so in that case, there won’t be a request for a final report.
