Where do you put in college courses that you took during high school on the AMCAS application? The "Program Type" category in the "Add a College" section doesn't exactly give an option for this...it wasn't exactly an undergrad experience. Would it count as a "junior college" course?

Add CC classes in high school as junior college, when you add the classes you took there, you can categorize it as high school. Add your main college as undergrad.

Only list those classes as junior college if you took them at a junior college. A junior college is a specific sort of school so don't just automatically list high school classes as junior college classes.

Would you mind telling us where you took them so we can help decide how to categorize them?

what you need to do is add the community college as a separate college. then list the courses and your class status as "HS".

You guys are assuming he took community college courses. If he is, then yeah, probably list it as junior college. If he took colleges at a local undergraduate institutiion, however, despite the fact that he was in high school it's not junior college.

We need more info.

Thanks! As a matter of fact, I did take the courses at a junior college. I guess that makes things simple.
