Student Description/Preparation Recommended Chemistry & Math Courses
A Little or no high school chemistry AND concurrent enrollment in MTH 095 Intermediate Algebra (3 cr) or MTH 103 Algebraic Reasoning (4 cr) or higher

CH 121 General Chemistry (5cr).

A more gradual and thorough approach in the CH 121, CH 122, CH 123 sequence will prepare some students to take an advanced chemistry course such as CH 331.

B Students who do not place in MTH 095 Intermediate Algebra (3cr) or MTH 103 Algebraic Reasoning (4 cr) should first complete MTH 075 Variables and Linear Equations (4 cr) with a C or better CH 121 General Chemistry (5 cr) concurrently with MTH 095 Intermediate Algebra (3 cr) or MTH 103 Algebraic Reasoning (4 cr)
C

Students without high school chemistry but who have AP credit or placement in MTH 251 Differential Calculus (4 cr) or higher.

OR:
1. At least one year of high school chemistry
AND

2. Completion of MTH 111 or higher
OR
concurrent enrollment in MTH 111
OR
placement in MTH 112 or higher

For best success, the Chemistry Department suggests: SATM (490) or ACTM (20) or MPAL (60)
