Hi hganser. You might try the "Academic Guidance" forum for questions about what to do in school.

Assuming you are talking about introductory college physics... have you looked at other nearby schools? Is there a community college in your area? Also, be sure to double check with the engineering program you are applying to to make sure they will accept the credit before you sign up for anything. If the engineering program is also nearby, they may be able to recommend a school for you.

I'm not familiar with online programs, but I know my school would not accept transfer credit from them when I was there.

I would recommend looking into online physics courses offered by reputable universities or educational institutions. These courses often have affordable options for students and provide high-quality instruction from experienced professors. Additionally, many of these courses offer interactive components such as virtual labs and discussion forums to enhance the learning experience. I would also suggest researching reviews and ratings from previous students to ensure the course meets your needs and expectations. It is important to note that online courses may require a strong self-discipline and time management skills to successfully complete the course. However, with dedication and effort, online physics courses can be a great option for students looking to fulfill their academic requirements.
