Has anyone taken BIO at CCConline? - page 3
Has anyone taken BIO-111 at CCConline? I am wondering how the lab part works. I took it through here because it was full at Front Range and I need it to take 201 and 202. Any help would be greatly... Read More
Dec 27, '09I have applied to the nursing program already, but I have also been an advisor for CU Boulder and then for CU Denver @ Anschutz for 5 years. I feel like I am getting a lot of conflicting information from my professional contacts and from what I read here. I became an advisor because I like helping students, so of course if you can take the online classes at CCC online and have them transfer, I think that's great! It may also be that only the pharmacy program and the medical program don't take these online classes, whereas my colleagues in nursing do. To eliminate any further confusion I am just going to talk with them tomorrow when I'm in the Ed buildings. So far on the nursing website the only thing I have found is it says that you may not take any more than 30 credits as correspondence or extension (meaning online or something else I think).
Here is what it says exactly
A maximum of 30 semester hours of correspondence, extension, credit may count toward the degree. Correspondence and extension credit must meet the guidelines for transfer of college level credit and are subject to review."
Dec 27, '09That would be great L&DRN2010! Would you please ask them about the GT courses?
And thank you for the link. It would be so nice to have something laid out in plain English, only 30 credit hours for correspondence, extension or online classes, etc. I knew a school that had correspondence classes that weren't online, go figure!
I look forward to hearing what they have to say!
Dec 27, '09I have applied to the program, I also applied to Regis, Metro, DSN, UNC, University of South Dakota and University of Wyoming. In all of my advising meetings...they've always said online classes weren't accepted so I really want to know what they say about them.

This cannot be accurate about UNC. Not only do they accept online classes from the community colleges of Colorado, they list on their website several online alternatives in out-of-state programs that they also accept. I've had my transcript evaluated by them, in person, by two separate advisors. Online prerequisites fulfilled through the community colleges are absolutely accepted.
But if anyone is concerned about this issue, all they have to do is contact the admissions office of the program in which they are interested. I'm glad we have Allnurses to help one another, but it never substitutes for a discussion with the school itself.
Dec 28, '09I was never talking about UNC, Regis, U of WY or U of SD, I was only referring to CU Denver at Anchutz as not accepting online classes.
Dec 28, '09Additionally, I was only referring to the classes with labs. It was my understanding that CU Denver does not accept Biology, Chemistry or A & P I or II online.
Dec 28, '09I just spoke with Connie, the S-Z advisor at the College of Nursing at CU Denver and she said they do take the CCC online courses.
I am so glad we have this clear now! And I really wish I would have taken some of my pre-reqs online now instead of killing myself 5 nights a week to do it on campus. Oh well, it's over now and that's all that matters.
Dec 28, '09Fantastic News Nurse2bNichol Thank you for asking and getting the final word on it!! Now, we just need to get accepted! Good luck to you!!
Mar 24, '10Quote from CBsMommyCBsMommy- Do you mind sharing which community college/instructor signed off on your taking 201 directly? (you can PM me if you'd like) I have been trying to find someone who will allow me to go directly into the A&P class.I've taken classes through CCCOnline.
If your school accepts them, they are great classes to take. I haven't taken Bio 111 through there (in fact, I skipped that class and got an instructor to sign off on me taking 201 directly) but I took A&P II, Micro and Patho online with CCCOnline. The lab kits are indepth and were really fun to do with my family. It's also fun to do them whenever you want and I didn't have to put up with lab partners!!! Good luck on your studies!
