Online Chemistry Courses
In addition to regular online semester-based courses offered through NDUS campus connection, we offer self-paced enroll anytime courses, which are open for enrollment any day of the year. Courses may be completed in 3 to 9 months. Credits will appear on your transcript just like regular college courses. Students receive the North Dakota in-state tuition rate regardless of actual or legal residency.
|Type of course||What to expect||Who it is for|
|On Campus Lecture||Students attend class sessions with an instructor. Assignments and exams have set deadlines.||Students who work best with in-person instruction and firm deadlines.|
|Online||Students watch lecture videos and complete readings on their own time each week. Assignments are completed by the end of each week.||Students who are independent, but still want the structure of weekly deadlines.|
|SPEA||Students complete course lessons at their own pace within 9 months. There are no set due dates for any assignment or exam.||Independent students who need complete flexibility and can set their own deadlines.|
