Microbiology online

  1. Does anyone know if there is an online microbiology course...and if so, could you please post the link. I had micro many years ago and will need to retake it, and I would love to be able to do it all online if possible. Thanks in advance.

    BYU has a great extended studies program. Accredited and not nearly as expensive as some of the other ones. Plus you don't have to apply for admission to the school just to take a few courses

    Be careful though to check the number of credits that you need for a certain class. I looked into Micro online also, but they were only 3 credit, and I needed a 4 credit one to be acceptable to my program.

    Also make sure your school will take that particular class as a transfer. Some schools won't take online courses at all.

    Also, no lab on the online course, but almost all programs require Microbiology with lab.

    I took Chem online (with lab) last semester - through the network of community colleges online here in my home state (Mississippi). http://www.msvcc.org

    Although the school I've transferred to is aware that I've taken many of my courses online, they don't show up as online courses on my transcripts.

    Just wanted to thank everyone who responded.....I am in the process of checking into the various websites that were provided. My course does require a 4 credit micro class.....so hopefully I can find something that has 4 credits, and has an online lab to go with. I can wish, can't I? :chuckle
