What will I learn?

Sequence overview:

The anatomy and physiology sequence consists of lecture and laboratory courses. Lecture courses focus on microscopic anatomy and physiology, while laboratory exercises predominantly cover gross anatomy. Each week students are expected to watch lecture and lab videos and complete assigned reading and assignments. Proctoring is required for midterm and final exams. Online or in-person proctoring options are available.


Each lecture course is 3 quarter credits and each laboratory course is 1 quarter credit (12 quarter credits total for the sequence). For transfer to the semester-based schools, three quarter credits equal two semester credits.


There are approximately 30 hours in each lecture course and 30 hours in each laboratory course, excluding examinations (180 hours per course sequence).


Completion of BIO 112 - Integrated Chemistry and Cell Biology for Health Occupations is required. Exceptions may be granted if students have taken other science courses or have clinical experience.

How will I learn it?



Each course is fully online and asynchronous. The anatomy and physiology courses are delivered fully online and require no campus visits. Since course materials are in prerecorded format, students may access them anytime during the day or night and in any time zone. However, these courses are not self-paced and adhere to a strict schedule.


The same textbook requirements apply to the entire sequence. You can purchase your textbooks through the KCC Bookstore.

What if I want to transfer KCC credits to another school?
