I took college credit classes through my high school my sophomore and junior year and received retroactive credit for them my senior year along with a grade for my senior class that built off of the classes I took sophomore and junior year. Do any of ya'll have experience inputting this into AMCAS? I checked the guide and it says retroactive credit should be marked as AP, however, I can't mark it as AP since the years I took the classes are high school years. I tried emailing and calling AAMC, but they haven't responded after a day and didn't pick up. This is the only thing stopping me from submitting. Any help would be appreciated.

1) I presume all the above mentioned are junior, senior from HS? or are you mixing HS and College here?
2) Are these actual dual enrollment classes? if so are these from the same or different college from where you went after HS?
3) or are these AP classes that your college eventually gave you credit ?

Hi @Zeeeeeon I am in this same situation right now and was wondering if you could share what you ended up doing to make sure your app was verified.

Thanks!

@barefooter11 I called the AAMC and walked them through my situation, and they told me what I should do. I would recommend you call them about your situation, and they should guide you through it as well.
Thanks for the info. I have tried calling AAMC, but am not having the best luck getting them to understand the exact situation/dilemma. Was hoping for a bit of information on how you ended up entering your retroactive credits. I will try calling again tomorrow and hopefully have some better luck.
