What do colleges think of online classes?

Hey everyone! I'm considering taking a few online classes next year, but I'm not sure if colleges view them as less rigorous than traditional classes. Do colleges view online courses differently? I don't want it to hurt my chances of getting into a good school. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! I can understand your concern about how online classes will be viewed by colleges. From my own experience with my child's college application process, I can tell you that it largely depends on the specific college and the type of online course you're taking. If the online course is provided by a reputable institution and is known for its rigorous curriculum, colleges are more likely to view it positively. As long as you're challenging yourself and maintaining a strong GPA, it shouldn't be a problem. In fact, many colleges appreciate students who take the initiative to further their education through online or dual-enrollment courses. My best advice would be to do your research and reach out to the admissions offices of the colleges you're interested in attending to get a better understanding of their specific policies. Good luck!
