Michelle Neary ’11, now attending Columbia University for a PhD in chemistry.

AP/IB Policy: Any student who received a 4 or 5 on the AP Chemistry Test, or 5 or more on the IB Chemistry Test, can enroll directly in Chemistry 115 or Chemistry 112. If AP students wish to receive credit for Chemistry 111, and not just advanced placement, they must provide documentation of their AP chemistry lab work to Prof. Keith Kuwata, the Chemistry Department chair.  Students who qualify to place out of Chemistry 111 are welcome to take this course anyway.

Should I take the chemistry placement test? If you would like to enroll in Accelerated General Chemistry (115) or skip General Chemistry I (111) and enroll directly into General Chemistry II (112) at any point in your college career and you did NOT receive a 4 or 5 on the chemistry AP test or a 5 or better on the IB chemistry exam, then the online chemistry placement test is for you. Students wishing to take the Chemistry Placement Test should contact Prof. Keith Kuwata, the Chemistry Department Chair.  Note that only students who have not previously enrolled in Chemistry 111 are eligible to take the placement test.
