Online Calculus 1 Course for Academic Credit

In searching for a real Calculus I course for academic credit, you may find lots of different sites running around the internet offering "Calculus I".

Most sites like Coursera, Udemy, MITx, and edX are wonderful programs, but they do not offer real academic credits. Some claim to offer "ACE Exam Credit" but that is an exam-based (partial) credit system that is not universally accepted by all colleges and universities - some might, most won't.

There are a handful of colleges and universities that do offer Calculus I for credit online. But if you did deeper into these courses, you will find usually that:
  • Courses only start on regular semester start dates
  • Courses follow a strict deadline structure
  • Courses use a "Course System", usually from a textbook publisher, where the system is mainly just a multiple-choice quizzing system.
In looking for a Calculus I course for credit, we recommend you do due dilligence, investigate the course offerings, and read the reviews of various programs. We are confident that Distance Calculus will be on your short list to consider which Calculus I course you wish to enroll in online.

Review by: Dan P.
Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I found the courses to be informative, enjoyable, and most importantly, effective in helping me learn the concepts of calculus. My math skills were always very weak, and I had a great deal of difficulty passing my undergrad math courses. The pace of a traditional classroom setting was just too quick for the concepts to really sink in. With Distance Calculus, I had courses that were taught with the full rigor of an on-campus class, but where I could take my time and really learn the material...all while having access to top-tier instructional help for real math professors and assistants. DC gave me the tools and the confidence I needed, so after successfully passing my DC courses, I moved on and completed a master's degree in CS.

Courses Completed: Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations
Review: I took Multivariable and Diff Eq during the summer. The DiffEq course was awesome - very useful for my physics and engineering course. I was unsure about Mathematica at first, but I got the hang of it quickly. Thank you Distance Calculus!
