Coming Winter 2018, the ULC will be offering online versions of both ULC 147 and ULC 148!
Each online ULC course is offered over the winter and summer semesters. The winter course lasts 3 weeks and the summer course lasts 6 weeks. Students will work through a specially designed curriculum in ALEKS – an online, self-paced mathematics learning environment. Students are supported with supplemental instructional videos and note sheets, synchronous virtual office hours, and review sheets for each exam.
All students are required to take three (3) one-hour, seated exams either on-campus or at an approved testing center (please see attached document below for more information). The dates and times for the exams will be established prior to the start of the term and are non-negotiable.
