Anyone know of a California community college that offers basic Chemistry courses ONLINE or LONG DISTANCE?

Thanks :D

    I'd like to know that as well. Or Saturday classes?

    I'd love to know that as well lol. I'm trying to find a general chemistry/ physics: mechanics that is either online or on weekends

    I do not know of any in California. I think the closest one is offered by Oregon State University in Covallis.

    Most chem classes have a lab component, so it would be hybrid at best or something like "kitchen chemistry" or "everyday chemistry"

    The Oregon State course is distance learning but you have to go to Corvallis for two Saturdays and spend the entire day (8:00AM-5:00PM) in the lab doing all the experiments for the term. Really only useful to Californians that are truly desperate to take General Chemistry given the travel costs to Corvallis and having to spend nine straight hours for two days in a Chemistry lab.

    I saw that when researching OSU. That is a really great idea. Everything is online, and then a weekend lab. I wish more would do that.
    Now if I could find the same type of program for Biology for science majors that would be even better.
