How should I add an Associate degree (earned before high school diploma) into extracurricular activities?
I have earned an A.S. Degree from my local community college via dual enrollment. How should I input this into my extracurricular chancing profile (i.e. under what category and level/tier)?
I currently have it under the Hobbies category, tier B. Is there a more accurate way to add this?

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.
Intuitively this doesn't sound correct since these are college courses you took to earn the AA degree. Certainly not hobbies. Since they are dual enrollment courses, you should incorporate them into your course work. I don't know what application portal you are using but I know that on the coalition application you can add a College and upload and submit your dual enrollment coursework and grades as well. When you review your profile they are organized alongside the year you took them as well. So if you did French for 3 years under dual enrollment, your coalition course work will show your HS classes and your College class concurrently because that is how you took them. Adding them to ECs is most confusing and unnecessary.
I agree - earning an AS degree and taking college classes is not considered an extracurricular. IT’s considered an academia which you would list under the CC/DE courses and include as part of the academic portion of your application (transcript, grades, gpa, test score, etc). So to answer your question - it doesn’t fit into any category since it’s not an extracurricular activity.
