Honors vs. Advanced Classes
Answered

When colleges ask for honors classes, are they the same as advanced classes? My school doesn't offer honors classes so I was wondering if advanced courses mean the same thing as honors.

Thanks.

I would say yes. This is because unlike AP classes, honors classes are not standardized. Every school will be slightly different in what honors classes they offer and how they are taught. I would so your counselor to be sure, but to me, an advanced class is the same as honors.
