I can't speak for other schools, but UChicago has an online archive of their course catalogs for each academic year going back to 1995. It would take the USPTO all of 15 seconds with a computer to verify this.

 
That might seem like a long period of time, but I would have needed another decade or so of prehistorical data.  Smiley    In any event I didn't have this issue to deal with because I have an engineering degree.

In my case, I didn't have the forethought to keep copies of the catalogs since I worked for a few years between undergrad and law school and had to contact the school to track down paper copies.

 
I find that a bit strange.   I believe that most people go through the registrar's office and get the required information without paying a $100 research fee.

LOL. I called the registrar's office first; they said they didn't keep hardcopies of prior years since they've been putting that information online now for a little over a decade. (and kindly gave me the URL  Roll Eyes)  The only place that had actual hard copies on campus was the library in the special collections section, so I had the choice of either travelling to Chicago or be at their mercy to the tune of something like $3.50 a page to have them do it for me.  
 
It does make you wonder, though, what the USPTO will do when schools decide to save on printing costs by going paperless.

LOL.     Now that you mention it, all "I called the registrar" anecdotes I know were from awhile back.  Maybe things are different now...

if you don't have the 8 credits for physics or chemistry, just find some community college to make up the credits.   I just did it.

iv. Option 4: 40 semester hours in a combination consisting of the following:
 8 semester hours of chemistry or 8 semester hours of physics, and
 32 semester hours of chemistry, physics, biology, botany, microbiology, molecular biology,
engineering. (For Computer Science, see other acceptable course work.)
 The 8 semester hours of chemistry or 8 semester hours of physics must be obtained in two
sequential courses, each course including a lab. Only courses for science or engineering
majors will be accepted. For Computer Science, see other "Other Acceptable Course
Work."
All acceptable coursework for Options 2 and 4 must be for science or engineering majors.

 
I noticed that it requires that not only must the hours be obtained in two sequential courses, but also "each course including a lab." Not every physics/chemistry course had a correspoding lab at my school (UCSD) and I didn't take every corresponding lab component of all the physics/chemistry courses because it wasn't required... is this going to be a problem?  I think I do have 10 consecutive semester hours of chemistry and 12 in physics (counting the units earned from the seperate lab courses).  I'm getting ready to study for the exam this summer but I don't know if this requirement will trip me up... input would be appreciated, thanks.
