The credit exams do not test laboratory skills, and therefore students do not earn credits for the laboratory component of General Chemistry when they pass the credit exams.
Students who pass the CHEM 105 credit exam will in most cases be required to take CHEM 101 General Chemistry Laboratory I (the laboratory component of CHEM 103) before taking CHEM 104. Exceptions may be made for students who already have some college-level chemistry laboratory experience. CHEM 105 and CHEM 101 together are equivalent to CHEM 103.
Students who pass the CHEM 106 credit exam will be required to take CHEM 102 General Chemistry Laboratory II (the laboratory component of CHEM 104) in order to complete the General Chemistry sequence and to proceed to further chemistry laboratory courses. Specifically, enrollment will not be permitted in CHEM 311, 327, 329, or 344 without completion of the laboratory component. CHEM 106 and CHEM 102 together are equivalent to CHEM 104.
