If I took an online course in places like Coursera or edX, where can I put it in my application?
Hi! I am an incoming senior this fall! I have already been filling out my applications over the summer! Along with this, I have been taking online courses that I am interested during this time. I was wondering where we could put these activities. For example, in the Common Application, would I put it in the Activities section or the additional information? If I put it in the Activities section, what category would I put for it? Or should I include it in the Courses & Grades section? Thank you so much!!

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
@DebaterMAX is right-- also, check in with your school! I'm taking online classes outside of school and my guidance counselor was willing to put them on my transcript since they're accredited classes. If you're taking the classes through an online high school/college, they may transfer onto your high school transcript with few issues.
