Self-paced science prerequisites, standalone labs
#1
At $460 per credit hour, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is not cheap, but their prerequisites are self-paced, and they offer standalone labs. I wish they called their chemistry courses general chemistry instead of chemical principles.

Pretty sure that Portage is also self-paced and they're only $264/credit hour. I don't think they offer standalone labs, though.

Portgage also just created an Organic Chemistry I course that will be offered soon. They don't have Organic Chemistry II yet.

They are only $198/cr.  No standalone labs though.

Anyone created a spreadsheet or wiki in regards to "options" for courses and labs, from ACE alternative credit and RA institutions? If the student is going to a local college/institute, it may be cheaper going that route, but it most likely is not self paced nor would it be faster.

$460 per credit? Yikes! It's much cheaper to take a lab science at a community college.

Organic Chemistry seems like a good option, they have a few courses offered that aren't offered cheaply through alternative credit. Unless you go through the community college route, this seems like a viable option.
