# Enroll Now, Start Today - AP Calculus vs Distance Calculus Academic Credits

Unable to "wait for the next academic semester"? Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University has you covered!Our Distance Calculus courses are designed to be asynchronous - a fancy term for "self-paced" - but it more than just self-paced - it is all about working on your timeline, and going either as slow as you need to, or as fast as your academic skills allow.

Many students need a Calculus course completed on the fast track - because time is critical in finishing calculus courses needed for academic prerequisites and graduate school applications.

## Distance Calculus - Student Reviews

Review by: Benjamin T.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: This course provided an excellent chance to learn about Calculus...again. I took calculus in high school, but I learned so much more with this course! It does take a good amount of time to do all the lessons, so definitely keep on top of them, but all the exercises helped me to really understand the material. And the nice thing is you can do it on your own time at home.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

Review: I took the Business Calculus course from Distance Calculus in 2013. I was admitted to my MBA program, but then they told me I needed to take Calculus before starting the program. I finished the Business Calculus course in about 3 weeks in August before my program started. Not the most fun thing to do over the summer, but at least I got it done. Thanks Diane and Distance Calculus team!

Review: I needed to finish the Business Calculus course very very very fast before my MBA degree at Wharton started. With the AWESOME help of Diane, I finished the course in about 3 weeks, allowing me to start Wharton on time. Thanks Diane!
