# Summer 2020 Enroll Now, Start Today - Multivariable Calculus Academic Credits

Summer 2020 @ Roger Williams UniversityUnable to "wait for the next academic semester"? Summer 2020 Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University has you covered!

Our Summer 2020 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.

Here is a video about earning real academic credits from Summer 2020 Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University:

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: Amazing professor, extremely helpful and graded assignments quickly. To any Cornellians out there, this is the Calculus Course to take in Summer to fulfill your reqs! I would definitely take more Calculus Classes this way in the future!

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!

Review by: Teddy M.

Courses Completed: Precalculus, Calculus I

Review: Pros: once you get going, you can go really fast. The visual textbook is pretty cool. The instructors were very responsive. Cons: the movies are great, but the software crashes more than it should. Sometimes it is just a hassle doing things in the software instead of on paper, but once I got used to the software, it was ok.
