Ozarka College will offer survey of calculus and general chemistry and lab this spring at the Melbourne and Ash Flat
campuses. These advanced math and science courses are transferable to all four-year universities in the state and are being offered in the late afternoon to allow both high school students and working students additional
Dr. Jason Self highlighted the importance of these types of offerings stating, “This is a great opportunity for students to complete higher level coursework in the STEM areas at Ozarka College. The lower student-to-instructor ratio allows a high level of interaction and support for students at a much lower cost than most transfer institutions.”
