Has anyone done the UNE chemistry online?  I'm just wondering what kind of time commitment it is and if anyone has been able to complete the courses in less than the 16 weeks that their website says?

Do a search on the site.  There have been many posts/threads in the past regarding these courses.  In particular, I recall many people stating they have had problems with the organic chem course, but one must take into consideration changes (instructor or course content presentation), so look especially for the more recent posts.

I'm assuming you're talking about general chemistry? I just got done taking Gen Chem I and will say that with each week's content, you will most likely put in 2-4 hours doing practice problems that will help you understand the content for quizzes and exams. The labs can be a little time consuming depending on how precise and accurate you wish to be....typically anywhere from 3-4 hours per lab (with some overnight waiting/drying mixed in for a couple of them) is enough. It took me about 11 weeks to get through everything and that was even with a few breaks I just wanted to take...if you're a good self motivator, there's no reason you couldn't get it done in a shorter timespan.

Hope this helps!

Thank you that’s helpful information 🙂  Debating whether or not to take the labs - I don’t need them, but are they helpful/worth it for understanding the content?

I thought the lab was a good learning tool and certainly helped to understand some concepts. If you don't NEED the lab for whatever you are working toward, I wouldn't worry about taking it. I say this mostly because of financial reasons, to be honest. Along with the extra credit hour, you are required to buy a lab paq (roughly $200) that has materials used for the entire lab section. If you're willing to spend the extra money and may potentially need the lab requirement down the road, by all means, go for it, they are pretty interesting experiments. If you don't need the lab, there are alternative routes to help understand concepts (YouTube has a lot of good educational videos on specific topics).
