Online Calculus 1 Course for Academic CreditIn 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.

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!

Review: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!

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!
