Helmetta, NJ asked in Education Law for New Jersey

Q: In middle school (8th grade) I was suspended for fooling around on the bus. Will colleges be able to see that? Thank you

My highschool record was very clean for the most part (had a lunch detention in my sophomore year) but my grades are good and my SAT scores are on the higher end of NYU's average. (I am hoping to get into NYU)
