    The first step would be to find out if they offer any of these online, and if not, what they will accept in transfer. No lab courses can be done online (so none of the sciences).

    Okay first thing's first, Look on the websites of the classes that you can take online. It's really not hard to do.. You can also do it by calling the school, if you don't have time to look it up.

    You can also see bout' which ones you can transfer over. Would make thing's a lot easier, before suggesting to go to the college. If you like the online courses that it has, then i'd advise you to go to that college for a while ;3

    Hoped this helped

    It looks like establishing residency for tuition purposes at Utah State is a lot easier than it is for most other schools in other states, which is good news for you. No matter how old you are, you need to move to Utah and live there for 12 months before you attend your first class there:

    Your parents will need to not claim you on their taxes this year and next year.

    It looks like they do allow you to take classes while you're becoming a resident, without jeopardizing your residency status. Again, different from a lot of other states, and lucky you. In fact, you can take summer classes at Utah State, and pay the in-state rate even if you aren't yet a resident:

    As for which classes you can take online - it depends on what classes are *offered* online. In addition, you can't take any classes that require pre-requisites that you don't yet have. For example, I'd be shocked if they were able to offer something like riding online. And the class you list, "Marketing Principles 3", would require you to take 1 and 2 before it, yes? So you need to do more work on your list. Narrow it down.

    I took an online computer class last summer. It was through our local community college. You might want to check out if colleges in your area offer such courses. Mine cost around $400, books and fees combined. Make sure you will be able to transfer your credits to your high school or college after completion.

    Finding out what's accepted in transfer, is a good idea too, before going through the motions.
