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. Compressed and remote labs are not being offered this Summer (2022) for E-Campus courses. 

Because of this unique time frame, the CH 261/262/263 classes when offered 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 may 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) may not match the actual course dates.
  • Registration (add/drop) dates: These align with the session in which a course is attached. 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: These are automatically aligned with the session in which the course is assigned. Therefore, if 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. 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.
