My school won't offer AP Physics C... what should I do?

I took AP Physics B as a junior but didn't take the AP test because I was planning on taking the AP Physics C test the following year. (My teacher informed me that AP Physics B and C alternate, and that is why I was in B instead of C.) I was expecting to be placed in C... but unfortunately this was not the case.

What should I do? I'm planning on majoring in Electrical Engineering/ Computer Science and I really wanted to take AP Phys C this year.

My classes(right now) are as follows:

AP Chem
AP Lit
Linear Algebra (college class)
Political Science (college class)
AP Art History (was supposed to be AP Physics but...)

Are these weak classes? Is it bad that I didn't take the AP Physics B test and now am not continuing on to taking Physics C? I'm nervous about how this will look on my college applications!

Is there any way I can take Physics C online (through an accredited institution) that will be looked upon favorably by the colleges I'm applying to?

Any information regarding what I should do would really help me out! Thank you!

(my counselor is no help, by the way.)
