How do admissions officers view online classes?

Hey guys, I'm a junior and I've taken a few online classes throughout high school due to scheduling conflicts and personal interests. I'm worried that college admissions officers might not view these classes as favorably as traditional in-person classes. What do you think? Thanks for any help!

Hey there! It's great that you've been able to pursue your interests through online classes. Admissions officers understand that students have different circumstances and reasons for taking online courses, such as the ones you mentioned. What's important is that these courses are accredited and rigorous, ensuring that you're gaining valuable knowledge and skills. If the online classes you've taken are from reputable sources and demonstrate your commitment to learning, they should be viewed positively by admissions officers. To further support your online coursework, consider highlighting your extracurricular activities, achievements, and any other experiences that showcase your well-roundedness and involvement in your community. This will help provide context for your online courses and demonstrate your ability to balance different aspects of your life. Ultimately, it's the overall strength of your application that matters the most. Good luck with your college applications!
