# Calculus 3 - Vector Calculus Accredited Calculus Academic Credits

If you wish to complete a Calculus 3 course online, make sure you take this course from a**regionally accredited college/university**so that the credits you earn from this course will actually transfer to your home college/university.

The free courses available from the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) like edX, Coursera, Udacity, Khan Academy, MIT Open Courseware, etc. are really excellent courses, but they do

**NOT**result in transferrable academic credits from an accredited university!

There are more than a few actual colleges/universities offering Calculus 3 - Vector Calculus courses online. Be careful as you investigate these courses - they may not fit your needs for actual course instruction and timing. Most require you enroll and engage your course during their standard academic semesters. Most will have you use a publisher's "automated textbook" which is .... um .... well, if you like that kind of thing, then you have a few options over there at those schools.

Distance Calculus is all about real university-level calculus courses - that's all we do! We have been running these courses for 20+ years, so we know how to get students through the these courses fast fast fast!

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

Review: I highly recommend this course. I started the Kennedy School at Harvard with a last-minute admission, but my application required the Liberal Arts calculus course, so I had to finish the course in 3 weeks. Diane was an awesome instructor! The class was surprisingly interesting. If you need to take calculus fast, this is the program to use.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

Review: Course was good and fast. I don't like math so I can't say it was fun or anything. Grader was very nice. Software was ok.

Review by: Harlan E.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II

Review: I did not do well in AP Calculus during my senior year in high school. Instead of trying to cram for the AP exam, I decided to jump ship and go to Distance Calculus to complete Calculus I. This was awesome! I finished Calculus I in about 6 weeks, and then I kept going into Calculus II. I started as a freshman at UCLA with both Calculus I and II done!
