In general, 100-level chemistry courses from Oregon universities do not transfer to OSU as CH 121-123 and do not fulfill the requirements for majors in those OSU departments that specify a year of general chemistry. Additionally, most Oregon universities do not teach an equivalent CH 121-123 course. Students who plan to transfer to OSU should normally take the 200-level general chemistry sequence that is considered equivalent to CH 231/261 - 233/263 (previously CH 221-223) at OSU unless their major requires otherwise.

A student should contact an academic adviser in the specific department of interest for clarification of the department’s general chemistry requirements. GOB chemistry sequences that cover a combination of general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry will not be accepted in place of CH 231/261 - 233/263 (previously 221-223) for certain majors such as chemistry.

A 100-level, 1 year, chemistry course sequence from a University that does not transfer to OSU as CH 121-123:

  1. is not allowed as a prerequisite for organic chemistry at OSU (CH 331 or CH 334).
  2. does not fulfill the OSU chemistry minor requirement for one year of general chemistry.


See summary table of articulations from community colleges

See summary table of articulations from Oregon public universities

In many cases, a course may not articulate as a specific OSU course, but the course still will serve as a prerequisite for other chemistry courses. This situation requires that you contact the OSU chemistry department for an override to be able to register for a course. The tables below are unofficial. While the intent is to keep them current and correct, the Oregon College Articulation Tables should be consulted as the official source. Also some of the information provided here is beyond that supplied in the official articulations tables. This information includes interpretations about how courses (even if they do not articulate with an OSU number) can be used for different majors including chemistry or to fulfill the requirements of the chemistry minor.

Explanation of terms:

  • LDT CH indicates that the one or more of the courses in the sequence transfer with no equivalent OSU number. These courses transfer as lower division transfer (LDT) or upper division credit transfer (UDT) chemistry (CH) credits with the course title and number of credits being the same as the original course.
  • PS denotes a physical science courses
  • * denotes a baccalaureate core course at OSU.

Previous to Fall 2007, CHEM 102 and CHEM 103 articulated as CH 122 and CH 123.

Students at EOU in the joint OSU/EOU programs in Crop and Soil Science or Rangeland Ecology and Management take CHEM 101-103 as the required chemistry sequence (EOU catalog).

  • Students that complete their degrees at Eastern will NOT be affected by these changes in articulations.
  • Students who transfer to the OSU programs in Corvallis MAY have CHEM 101, 102, 103 accepted by their OSU adviser in their agricultural major or program to meet the requirement of a lower division Chemistry sequence. CHEM 101, 102, 103 count for the OSU baccalaureate core requirement for physical science.
  • Agriculture majors and other students who plan to transfer to an OSU/Corvallis major program requiring organic chemistry must take the 200-level general chemistry at Eastern to be prepared for organic chemistry at OSU. CHEM 204-206 sequence is also the prerequisite for the organic chemistry sequence at EOU. Students with a weak chemistry background may wish to first take CHEM 101-102 before enrolling in CHEM 204-206 at EOU.

EOU students, who plan to transfer to OSU after taking general chemistry and organic chemistry and who need organic chemistry (CH 331, 332, 337) for their major or chemistry minor at OSU, should take the CHEM 204-206 sequence for general chemistry, the CHEM 334-336 sequence, and CHEM 338 & 339 at EOU.

This articulation for organic chemistry is ONLY valid if the ENTIRE organic sequence is taken and transferred because there is not a direct correspondence between individual courses. If only CH 331 is taken at OIT and transferred, a student must start with CH 331 at OSU. If only CH 331 and 332 are transferred, a student must still take CH 332 and CH 337 to complete the non­majors organic sequence at OSU.

OSU Major OSU Requirement for Major Take at UOa Articulation from UO to OSU
Non-chemistry major (e.g. Biology) CH 331, CH 332 & CH 337 - 12 credits CH 331, 335 and 337- 11 credits CH 331, 335 and 337
Chemistry or Biochemistry Major CH 334, 335, 336 & 361 - 12 credits CH 331, 335, 336, 337, 338 - 16 credits CH 331, 335, 336, 337 and CH UDT (3 credits)

aIf a pre-health major that transfers to OSU needs a minimum of 12 cr of 'organic chemistry', the student could add CH 338 or CH 336 at UO.

Completion of the CH 334 , 335, 336, CH 337 and 338 will be considered as a valid substitute for the organic chemistry courses CH 331, 332, & 337 at OSU in all programs that require the this OSU sequence and also as three UD CH courses in organic chemistry (one course counting as a lab course) for the requirements for the chemistry minor at OSU. Both labs must be taken to count CH 337 at WOU as CH 337 at OSU.

Any of the above courses of 3 or more credits can be used for the UD CH requirement for the chemistry minor at OSU. 3-credit courses other than CH 340 or 341 are considered to be in an area other than organic chemistry.

WOU CH 312 and CH 313 as a pair will be considered as "equivalent" and or a valid substitute for to OSU CH 421 and CH 422 (required for chemistry majors). They also can be used as two UD CH courses (one counting as a lab course) for the requirements for the chemistry minor at OSU.

WOU CH 320, INTRO TO FORENSIC SCIENCE, is not considered an acceptable course for the chemistry minor as it does not fit into one of the primary areas of chemistry (organic, physical, analytical, inorganic, or nuclear) and the topics would be primarily taught in other departments at OSU.
