People ask about the availability of chemistry classes in the area, especially at night, and especially for organic chem. Here is what I know. Please check details with the schools, and please let me know if you learn of others.
The only Bay Area colleges that I know offer evening classes for regular university level organic chem are the following:
Laney College, Oakland (at Lake Merritt BART). The course is Chem 12A (first semester) and 12B (second semester). For their schedule information: http://web.peralta.edu/admissions/schedule-of-classescatalogs/. Note that this page is for the group of colleges in the Peralta district. So far as I know, only Laney has the organic course at night.
City College of San Francisco (CCSF, at Balboa Park BART). The course is Chem 208A (first semester) and 208B (second semester). Important: CCSF offers two levels of organic chemistry; be sure to check that 208 is appropriate for your needs. For their schedule information: http://www.ccsf.edu/Schedule/.
Foothill College in Los Altos. The course is Chem 12 -- A, B and C, since they are on the quarter system. For their schedule information: http://www.foothill.edu/schedule/schedule.php.
In general, lower division courses are widely available at many community colleges. Evening sections are common. Check with any community colleges that are convenient for you.
