How do colleges view online classes on my transcript?

Hello! I'm a junior in high school, and I've taken a few online classes to supplement my regular coursework. I was wondering how colleges view these online courses on my transcript? Will they be considered the same as in-person classes? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's great to see that you're taking the initiative to supplement your regular coursework with online classes. Colleges generally view online courses positively, as long as they are from reputable sources and accredited institutions. These courses can demonstrate your dedication to learning and your ability to manage your time and work independently. In most cases, colleges will consider online courses to be equivalent to in-person classes, especially if they are part of your high school curriculum or offered by accredited providers. Just make sure to maintain good grades in your online courses and provide any necessary documentation to show their credibility if required by the college. Ultimately, what matters most is your overall academic performance, the rigor of your course load, and your involvement in extracurricular activities. Keep up the good work, and best of luck with your college applications!
