Chemistry Placement – NEW PROCESS

In the spirit of AB 705, the Chemistry department has chosen to no longer use a Chemistry test for placement into Chemistry 101A.  Instead, they will now use the evaluation of high school transcripts.

To challenge the Chemistry 102 prerequisite, please bring an unofficial high school transcript to a drop-in counselor to demonstrate that you meet the following requirements:

  • Passed high school chemistry in the past 3 years &
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 3.0
  • No self-reporting

Students who satisfy the Chemistry 102 prerequisite must still complete the Math 152 prerequisite (or place higher than Math 152) before enrolling in Chemistry 101A.
