    I'm fairly certain you can find those at your nearest university, but personally, I would look at a community college to do those bc it will be cheaper. But here's a little heads up, all those classes with the exception of the social sciences, will prob need to be taken at the college bc they all require labs. Youll need at least 8 hours each of chemistry, biology, A&P, Physics. Unless you can find a blended class, but you would still need to come in for the lab. Hope this helps.

    Most of those courses involve Labs and you will not be able to take them online and to be honest, I have never seen online Bio/Anatomy/Physiology. You might be able to find Gen Chem lectures online, but most schools require a lab so you will still need access to a campus. Your best bet is a community college for affordable and flexible classes.

    I don't see how zoology is going to help you with physical therapy, which involves working with humans, not animals.

    Kinesiology is a major, not a class. And I sincerely doubt a class like biomechanics would be offered online.

    1) Cherokee is right...zoology probably won't be accepted by PT schools...some specifically say it isn't. Check with where you're applying.

    2) Stop trying to take every course online...you'll be screwed if you go to PT school and all your prerequisite courses are online...in fact most PT schools won't let you in with only online prereqs, as in-person labs are commonly a requirement. Not to mention that when you go to PT school, you'll be in class 8 hours a day. If you've been only doing online courses, you'll be setting yourself up for failure since you haven't been in a classroom environment in a long time.

    3) Community colleges often have classes at night for this exact reason - people who work full-time and are trying to go back to school. Look into there.

    4) This is the second thread you've created on this topic. I'm merging this thread with the old one.

    The community college I have been too offers Bio 1 and Chem 1 online in which you do the labs at home. I haven't seen anything beyond that in the science area simply because the lab aspect of it. They offer all the social sciences online though.

    nwacc.edu

    My (mid-sized to large) university didn't have a single online class though! I'm not sure if that is the norm or not.

    Maybe look at night classes in your area at a community college.
