    This is awesome! It is the same number so she can look into the course catalog and the numbers will match. Also doesn't say anything about online which others do!! Yay thank you! I already cleared out the screen but forgot to check. Did you do all your science pre Reqs on here? A&P l≪ Micro; Chem?

    I just realized Stash wrote 5 credits. I need 4, definitely more than I wanted to spend but I guess my other alternative is UofP which this looks much better for transferring. So I guess we pay more for the convenience....;-( UofP is 1095 (military discount) including book, this course seems it will be at least $765 not including text. Do you need a test as well or does the 115 fee include that?

    I meant Colby looks better to transfer

    Ugh don't mind me, I just looked again, since the credits weren't matching on edukan. I'm am back to being exciting! It looks like A&P l&ll is in fact 4cr, micro is 5cr!!

    I took Micro at Edukan, the rest of my credits biology and chemistry were accepted from purdue university which I attended over 30 years ago. The $155 is an imbedded online book and it covers your lab fee. yes it is 5 credits but always o.k. to have that extra credit. I heard UOP of phoenix is not bad, but I cannot afford to take classes there as I only get partial reimbursement from my employer and refuse to pay $1700 for a class. UOP also has group projects whereas Edukan does not.

    Also ChiChiMungo I don't know what difference it makes if the class is online or not. As long as it has a lab and is regionally accredited you should have no problem.

    I'm not all that sure it does. Have just heard a few people state that they were overlooked due to it being "online" or the school wouldn't take any science credits done online. I know UAF does, that's where I was told about UofP. Just too gosh dang expensive. I'm going to call Colby if not today then next week and find out about signing up. Thank you ;-)

    You sign up through edukan, not Colby but you pick Colby as your home college. Pretty easy to do. I bought the book as I do not like the online book.

    I know this is old but Stash11 or anyone else who has taken edukan class. Any issues transferring into nursing program? I have to give course description and I went into all the schools in Ks that you can choose from and it either doesn't say any lab in description or says "online" which I feel will hinder chances to getting Into program. The person who checks credit transfers from University of Alaska, where I am applying, told me she has accepted University of Phoenix since they are regionally accredited but they are so expensive per class and I'm nervous they will lose accreditation soon as they are up for assessment right now and there's a chance of them being put on probation or "notice" status.

    U of P being put on probation? For what?

    Are all the labs online for the online micro? It's the only pre req I'm missing to apply for the nursing program and would love to busy it out much quicker do I can apply. Anyone had trouble with their schools not accepting it?
