The Pre-general ed-prerequisites - (Chem, physics, bio) How many credits are required for each?

Hello!

I am trying to figure out how to take my pre-pre reqs online for an affordable price. Who has a suggestion? Where do I look? I think I just need the chem or physics, and a biology. 

Also, does anyone know how many credits are required for those general ed prerequisites? For example I have 3 credits in stats from my undergrad...does that count?

 

Thank you!

Most bigger community colleges offer classes that satisfy the ASHA requirements. Community college classes are typically the most cost effective option and have a variety of times/formats available. One way to get them done quickly is check out schools in your state for what you need/pricing and enroll for online courses if the campus isn't within driving distance for you. If you're okay with paying more, lots of universities also have "extension" programs that are open-enrollment. Being from California, in addition to taking classes at Santa Monica College and Pasadena City College, I took statistics through UCLA extension because it was faster at the time. I also took some outstanding leveling classes online through Eastern New Mexico University and CalState San Marcos, both of which were more reasonable than taking courses through some of the bigger name schools, like Northwestern. Community college classes were typically ~200 each with supplies. Everything else tended to be between $800-$1200 per course.

It's less about the units and more about how they transfer between schools, but I believe the rule of thumb is 3-5 per class and that the classes count. Also, if you've been out of school for a minute, you should check to see if all of your current credits still count. My graduate program asked me to retake statistics for a letter grade because my credits were more than 5 years-old (which was honestly a good thing, but a surprise). Everything else I had for the pre-reqs was in that 3-5 credit range (each class).
