Placement Exam Information

All students wishing to take chemistry during their first year are required to take the chemistry placement test, except for those who have received credit based on the AP exam, International Baccalaureate HL exam, or British A levels.  The Placement Exam will assist the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in determining whether placement in Chemistry 103 or Chemistry 104 is more appropriate.  Students who enter with advanced placement should register for Chem 107.
