Students considering majoring in Chemistry are required to enroll in CHEM 101 in the freshman fall semester. They should consult the CHEM 101 coordinator if an exemption to the math prerequisite is required.
# CHEM 101 is offered in the fall only.
Freshmen are invited to enroll in a particular section of CHEM 101 based on their previous experience and potential interest. If a scheduling problem should arise due to this sectioning, please call the CHEM 101 Coordinator for advice.
Potential Chemistry majors should be strongly encouraged to take a math course in their first semester. All Chemistry majors are encouraged to complete Calculus (MATH 201 and 202) by the end of their sophomore year.
For the fall semester, students with Level I placement on the Basic Math Skills Inventory should enroll in MATH 099, students with Level II placement should enroll in MATH 120, and students with Level III placement should enroll in MATH 201.
PHYS 101 and 102 or 203 and 204 should be taken in the freshman or sophomore year.

Chemistry majors who wish to study abroad in the sophomore or junior year should take this into consideration when planning their schedules.
Very highly qualified students, who have completed an AP course in chemistry in high school and scored a 4 or 5 on the AP-Chemistry Exam or who have completed an IB curriculum with a score of 5 or better on the IB exam in chemistry may consider enrolling in CHEM 209 or CHEM 215 during their first semester.
