anatomy/Physiology Online? Anywhere?

Hi everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am a California native living in Colorado taking prerequisites. Because I am legally a California "resident" I have to pay out of state tuition for any of my classes here in Colorado. Each 4 unit class in Colorado costs me around $1500.

In Cali I have finincial aid so my classes are waived. Question: Does anyone know of an Anatomy/Physiology 1 course offered fully online through California?

The University where I plan on attending (in Colorado) wants a mixed version of the two courses: A&P1, A&P2 instead of Anatomy and Physiology, which most community colleges in CA offer.

Thanks in advance!:heartbeat

Sorry I don't know of any off the top of my head. But when I was taking prereqs, I went to

http://www.cccco.edu/CommunityColleges/tabid/830/Default.aspx

and looked at the list of colleges. I went to each website and checked out their online course schedule. Before you enroll, make sure you contact your school and ask if they will take their credits.

Hope this helps, and good luck to you!

I don't think it exists "fully" online since there is a mandatory lab portion. Sorry.

100% in California online?.. no.. I live in California and took mine (100%) via Rio Salado... (in Arizona) Good luck!

I'm from San Diego, and I remember the community colleges offered Bio 101 fully online (lab included). I didn't take it, but I am seeking out all my options.

Thank you everyone for your replies!

I think for some education, yah just gotta (sic) be there :),

For anyone who reads this with the same question, I have received information about Barton County Community College. They offer multiple fully-online courses (includuing A/P 1) for $68 per hour/unit for out of state tuition.

When the class shows up on your transcript it says nothing about being online, it only indicates credit hours and grade (like any other class). It is a great idea for anyone who needs to retake a course over the summer, fulfill a class they are familiar with or have someone close by who can help.

The school is fully accredited like most other community colleges and all classes are equivelant to relative courses that include a hands on lab.

Again, thank you everyone for your opinions!

You don't have to disect (a practical, learned skill in most anatomy courses) small animals at home and send in digital photo's do you?

goingformydream,

i looked into the A&P at rio salado az but this is what i found:

Students are required to work through all online lessons. The following summarizes work submitted to the instructor for evaluation:

  • 5 Essay Assignments - 10%
  • 2 Proctored Exams (1 midterm, and 1 final) - 60%
  • 6 Take Home Quizzes - 10%
  • 19 Lab Review Exercises- 20%

Did you have to go in to take the exams? or this something new?

proctored exams are not new.... you can either go to the testing sites (in Arizona) or do what I did.. take your exam at the local library (they will mail the test to the proctor)

silly question how did you find the proctor? does it have to be a teacher or can it be anyone from the library?

How long have you lived there? You only need to be there 1 year for in state tuition...

I went through CCCOnline and it was great.

I think somewhere on their site it talks about the rules for proctor... your local library probably has a program.. my library even had information about proctored exams on their website...

I took my Human Anatomy in summer and have just finished my Human Physiology at WHCC. (community college) Both classes are with lab. They are tough though but if you are committed and work hard you will do well. Email me if you need any info.

I took my physiology class and lab as well as my anatomy class and lab completely online through Kansas City Kansas Community College (kckcc.edu). It was intense as I took them in the summer session (6 weeks) but they were excellent and I really felt like I took a lot away from them.

Anyone currently taking Bio 202 through Rio Salado?

Did you take the class at Barton College? How was is it? Difficult/Easy? Thanks
