listing PE classes on applications
Hello, I'm filling out the classes on my applications (Common App, UC, and Coalition) right now, but when it comes to listing my PE classes I'm not sure if I should list them or not. I took dance for 2 years and it fulfilled my Visual Arts requirement for A-G courses and PE for my school's requirements but I don't think physical education is actually a requirement for any universities. Should I list the classes even though they're not academic courses?

You report all grades no matter the class. Schools like the UC will not factor it into thier version of the GPA but just about all other schools accept PE in your high school GPA. PE as a class isn’t need to enroll but it will be on your transcript of classes taken and you report all classes on your transcript so Tracy is 100% wrong on that.
But yes Dance will count for visual art.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
Common App and Coalition App, I believe you should list PE Courses.
On the UC Application, you only list A-G classes. Dance should be listed because it was the F requirement for your A-G coursework. You will list it under the area labeled "Visual and Performing Arts". Here is a helpful link for the UC A-G requirements: https://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/admission-requirements/freshman-requirements/subject-requirement-a-g.html
