    Need Calculus and Statistics...

    Looking for advice on selecting a college.

    I need to take:
    pre-calculus, calculus I, calculus II, and statistics.

    In a perfect situation the classes: are regionally accredited, have a shorter semester, completely online, and don't require proctored exams.

    I am being picky because I don't enjoy math so any perks will make me feel better with having to go through with it. Thank you for any help.

    Calculus

    You will find plenty of Calculus courses online or independent study. But you will be hard pressed to find one without proctored exams. You may find one that has online exams, but that would be rare.

    Other than your local cc's, your best opportunities would be BYU, or LSU. Coastline Community College in California is a good bargain as well but requires a proctor.

    You will also need to see if the school you are transferring them into will accept the credits from the school you take it at. Some universities will only take them if you complete the entire series at one school, like Calc I,II, and III. Others will just require I and II from the same school. If would also depend on the degree you want. If it is a hard science or engineering , they will most likely want the entire series (I,II,III) to be done at one school.

    I really hope there aren't any RA degrees that have unproctored tests. I mean, what's the value if someone could have a friend do all the work for them? Or, these days, just plug all the problems into wolframalpha.

    You may be interested to know that there's evidence online students cheat less than their peers on campus, not more.
