During each Summer term, the 200-level online General Chemistry series is condensed, so that students may complete a full year of General Chemistry with labs in one summer.  Each lecture class is 3-weeks long; each on-campus lab is 3-days long.

Because of this tight timeframe, the CH 231/232/233 and CH 261/262/263 classes do not fit well into the OSU Summer “sessions” which govern registration and withdrawal dates, as well as refund amounts and benefits to veterans.  This may impact students in several ways:

  • Session dates do not match course dates: all summer courses must be assigned to a session (1 – 6), however, in this case, the session dates automatically listed in the OSU Schedule of Classes (catalog.oregonstate.edu) do not match the actual course dates.  Therefore, students should refer to the “COURSE RUNS …” text in the Comments section to find actual class dates, which are also shown in the matrix below.
  • Registration (add/drop) dates align with the session in which a course is attached, not the course itself. Therefore, students must follow the registration deadlines dates associated with the session in which the course is assigned and/or seek additional assistance.*
  • Refund schedules are automatically aligned with the session in which the course is assigned. Therefore, when course date ranges do not match session date ranges, students may need additional assistance* to ensure proper refund amounts based on their actual drop date.
  • Veteran Benefits are usually allocated based on the session in which the course is assigned and not the course date ranges. This can be problematic when the session date range is shorter than the actual course date range.  Therefore, students utilizing veteran’s benefits are encouraged to talk with the OSU Office of Student Life to determine benefits for their specific case.

*Since the course date range does not align well with the session date range, students may need departmental assistance to work with the Registrar’s Office to manage their registration (add/drop) and/or the Student Accounts Office for appropriate refunds. Therefore, it is recommended that you first try to utilize MyOSU to manage your registration, then contact chemistry.ecampus@oregonstate.edu if additional assistance is needed.
