    I am new to online learning so bear with me please. I would like to do all my math requirements through online courses at my own pace, I will need statistics to transfer to a UC in California. Here are my questions:
    Can I complete all my math online at CLEP or ALEKS?
    Do I need to make sure the school I want to transfer to accepts those credits?
    Are the classes at CLEP or ALEKS proctored for their exams or ?

    I have many more questions but lets start there, thank you so much

    It's entirely up to the school you are transferring to if they will accept the credit or not....You MUST check with them first. There is a good chance that UC California will accept CLEP/DSST credit (both of which are proctored exams). It's unlikely thay will take ALEKS or Straighterline for credit...but you can check and see.

    Understand that CLEP/DSST are just exams...you have to study or know enough to pass them there is no class per se. Here is a great guide Free Clep Prep.com

    There are plenty of online options for self paced Math study The University of Idaho Independent Study program, BYU, LSU, University of Arkansas, CSU-Pueblo are just a few of the schools that offer self paced classes...probably quite competitively priced compared to the tuition in California. These are all regionally accredited programs and are likely to transfer...but it's still wise to check first.

    It depends. ASK first. My brother and I go to the same state university, just different campuses. His school (UM Technical) accepted ALL of his ALEKS courses. Mine listed them as "Various, no credit" on my transcripts. So I got screwed, and took them for nothing, while he laughs all the way to the bank. (Not really laughing, the Statistics course is kicking his butt -- over 50 hours and less than half through.)
