Struggling with finding online orgo 2 class


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am currently attending a 4 year college to get my undergraduate degree done, but as lots do, I failed Organic Chemistry II. Now I'm looking for an online class to supplement the requirement. It's literally the last class I need to move forward. I found one from a community college near to my school, but the issue with that is the classes have already started. While I was got all the paperwork done, my home college took about a week to send it out, messing up the scheduling portion of attending the community college since they stop scheduling classes after a certain date. I had talked to them before this and they made it seem like that wouldn't be an issue, but now talking to them again, it seems to be a problem. I'm worried as this is the last semester I have before my financial aid runs out. The school takes so long to do anything even with my calling that I don't know if it will be worth the effort to try to get accepted as a visiting student at a different school if I cannot schedule.

I have been looking at Doane University, but I'm afraid that the same thing will happen. I am not sure how to proceed, so any advice would be helpful. If I withdraw and try to complete the class over summer instead, maybe that would be better, but I'm not sure if my financial aid will carry that long.

Hi doane university offer late start classes in march. So far this is my first week in organic chemistry one and it has been great so far! I didn't have to send no paperwork also they assume that the student knows which course to sign up for and that they have the prereqs. to do well in the class. 

I didn't know that! That's sound great! Maybe I should be seriously looking in to it, then. Do you know if the credits transfer back to the home college in the same semester?

Hey there! How did your O Chem class fair out? I'm currently taking Biochem through Doane and it's been manageable but I'd like to know if OChem is structered in a similar way. Can you tell me what the class breakdown, like quizzes, tests, assignments, etc? Thanks!

I have run into this situation before.  It is relatively common.  

Here is what I do (as an instructor) to remedy the situation:  I have the student contact the Registrar and ask for a late enrollment.  At some schools, this is free but at others it could be a $100 charge.  If a late enrollment is not possible, I simply have the student sign up for the class as a second session course (being taken over the second half of the semester).  The second session enrollment route almost always works to remedy these situations.  

I always give the student the materials (syllabus, assignment list, access to quizzes/tests) so that the student will not fall behind.  

I hope this information helps you.
