Portage offers competitive tuition and no need to purchase any additional materials, such as text books. The self-directed nature of our courses and the fact that you can start on any date are distinct advantages when a student is attempting to meet an upcoming deadline.
Each student is assigned their own personal instructor who is available by site mail to explain material which is not understood by the student. Several courses have help file links within the lesson modules containing detailed explanations and extra sample problems.
The video lab will require you to maintain a lab notebook while viewing lab work being done by an experienced scientist. You will then need to complete an exam based on each experiment. The video lab has been chosen because it assures that you get to experience a wide variety of experiments with successful results. The lab exams must be completed to certify that the student has completed a Lab science course. The lab exams will factor into the final grade for each student.
The grading scale used in all Portage courses is as follows: A: 89.5% - 100% B: 79.5% - 89.4% C: 69.5% - 79.4% D: 59.5% - 69.4% F: 0% - 59.4%
