Complete at your own pace

Work­ing at the pace typ­i­cal for a four semes­ter hour course, the aver­age stu­dent will com­plete this online anato­my class in approx­i­mate­ly 16 weeks. Many stu­dents are non­tra­di­tion­al stu­dents who have elect­ed an online anato­my course for the sake of flex­i­bil­i­ty. Since the course is self-paced, you may com­plete the course in less than 16 weeks.


At least one semes­ter of col­lege lev­el biol­o­gy is strong­ly sug­gest­ed to be suc­cess­ful in this course. All pre­req­ui­site cours­es must have been com­plet­ed suc­cess­ful­ly with­in the past sev­en years.

Note: the stu­dents some­times have old­er ver­sions of the text­books required above and often asked if they can use them for this course. The old­er ver­sions can be used to a cer­tain extent to study but it will make it some­times dif­fi­cult to find the cor­rect dia­grams and read­ing sec­tions and the ide­al approach remains to have the cor­rect ver­sion of the required text­books. Also, due to the nature of the course, stu­dents some­times ask if they can pur­chase these text­books in a dig­i­tal for­mat.
