    I took A&P I & II as well as Microbiology and I am about to take Chemistry. Other than the price, I think it is great. The labs in Microbiology were good. I am not so sure about the labs in A&P, as they were lind of stupid, but I guess I did learn the characteristics of looking at things under glass.

    I would recommend CCConline highly.

    I am taking a 3 credit Microbiology course online through Brigham Young University. I got approval from my advisor at Excelsior and was told that this course satisfies the micro requirement.....

    I took a course (nutrition) through BYU. They are very organized and I am sure your experience will be a good one.

    Good Luck

    I took Microbiology online class through Bringham Young Univ and passed with a B plus. It was not easy, but I did it. Anyone interested I do have notes, and some quiz answers.

    Hi all,

    I thought that maybe it would be good to have a sticky for online science courses.

    I am currently looking for an online/distance learning-- 4-- credit microbiology course. Of course it has to have a lab.

    I know that both ccconline and Rio Salado offer these courses. Anyone have experience with either one of these in regards to microbiology, i.e. testing, level of difficulty, user friendly technology. I know from experience with Rio that the exams are proctored but how does ccconline deliver their exams?

    If you have a link or resources to other colleges offering sciences--please post them here.

    Excelsior accepts all kinds of classes. It is nor very rigid at all. Even from LVN programs. You have to be an LVN or at least a Paramedic to apply to their program. Be careful. Some states are no accepting Excelisior including California.

    Best to check with the school you want to transfer into.

    opalm is right. safest thing to do is check with the school you intend to enroll in to make sure they'll accept online classes. that said, MANY people have posted to the effect that the transcripts from places where you take the online class make no mention of it being an online class. you simply get a transcript from xyz college saying you took A&P I or whatever. My A&P I this semster is $460 (4 units x $115 per unit) plus the books are around $200. haven't bought em yet. definitely more expensive than a regular cc but you can do the labs online using ADAM software and as I posted elsewhere, not dissecting an animal is easier for me because of my religious beliefs.

    Good luck!

    Cheers,

    Just call 'em up and ask them. Chances are they will take them but you never know.

    So are you telling me that I can take A&P at home from Philadelphia, with an at home lab, no cat dissecting, and do it before nursing school actually starts? And not have to set foot on a campus?

    Where is this school and am I dreaming?! :chuckle

    There are several colleges offering A&P online. I will tell you straight out they are very time consuming and involved. That being said, A&P by it's very nature requires a great deal of time so online is no different in that aspect than oncampus.

    I know Rio Salado offers both I and II and CCConline also offers I & II. There may be other schools as well. I have taken A&P courses online and on campus and I found both to be identical in content just different in approach. I will say they are both equal in preparing nursing students.

    I would suggest you check with the school you would like to transfer these credits to and be sure they will accept credits from the school you are considering. Some schools require both I & II to be taken at the same school.

    Good luck and feel free to pm me.
