Hi there, I've been a long time lurker of this network, but just made an account today. So I have somewhat of a convoluted story as to why I am going this route, so I won't bore anyone with the story. I am currently residing in my home-state while doing online classes at the local community college where I will be moving to once I sell my house. I am taking Ethics, American Lit, and Intro to Psych. Is it okay for me to take Intro to Psych, a pre-req, online through a CC? I have seen various information upon this, so I was just looking for a definitive answer. Thanks!

Some schools will not allow prereqs via online however they maybe specific as to which courses. You will have to get the MSAR and look school by school and see if any schools that you had considered applying to require psych and, if so, wont take online.

While psych is needed for the MCAT, the course itself needs to be completed prior to matriculation. You can apply without the course and pick it up during your glide year

I took psych online at a community college. My pre-health advisor (over 20+ years experience) told me it was fine. I received credit for it at my university. They told me it's not a big deal as long as it's not one of those major STEM courses like orgo or gen bio.
