Hello! I just shot mails to a few of the universities I'm applying to, with the exact same question. Over the course of quarantine, I completed two courses, but, I didn't claim the certificate to either of them. When I asked if I must do so, all the admissions officers, asked me to mention them in my Activities/ Extracurriculars section, or in the Additional Information section. They specifically mentioned that the certificate wasn't necessary.

Also, the University of Michigan is a really reputable and highly ranked university; any AO would be pleased that you are voluntarily taking a course by UMich. It will give them a clear picture of how you are ready for a rigorous education system!

MY ONLY ADVICE, WOULD BE FOR YOU TO MENTION 'VERY CLEARLY' THE COURSE YOU ARE TAKING.

All the best!!

Yes you can. I would suggest putting it in the Additional information section. Other than that, you can also create a linked in account or a zeemee account and attach your certificates there. You can then direct the admission officers to check out those links using your additional information section.

I hope this answers your question!
