Online Calculus Course for Academic CreditsIn searching for a real Calculus course for academic credit, you may find lots of different sites running around the internet offering "Calculus I" or "Calculus II".
Free sites like Coursera, Udemy, MITx, Khan Academy, 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 for credit online. But when you did deeper into these courses, you will discover:
- Courses only start in the beginning of Fall, beginning of Spring, and beginning of Summer semesters.
- Courses have a strict deadline structure
- Courses utilize "Course System", via a textbook publisher, where the system is just a multiple-choice quizzing system.

Review: A lifesaver. When I found out I needed a course done in the last weeks of summer I thought there was no way i'd find one available, but this let me complete the course as quickly as I needed to while still mastering the topics. Professor always got back to me very quickly and got my assignments back to me the next day or day of. Can't recommend this course enough for students in a hurry or who just want to learn at their own pace.

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!
