If I took a chemistry lab in high school, do I still have to take a lab class with Chemistry 130? My friends in LSA don’t.
You are required to take the Chemistry 125/126 labs to fulfill the Engineering chemistry core requirement. The College of Engineering does not accept high school chemistry lab experience. The exception is if you receive a satisfactory score or grade in the Chemistry AP, A-Level, or IB Exams.
I placed into Chemistry 130, and plan to take Chemistry 210/211 in the Winter Term. Do I also have to take Chemistry 125/126?
No. You do not have to take the Chemistry 125/126 labs if you are planning to take Chemistry 210/211. Only one chemistry lab is required, and Chemistry 211, the concurrent lab with 210, will fulfill the requirement for the CoE.
I am taking Chemistry 210/211 in the Fall Term. Will this fulfill my chemistry lab requirement?
Yes. Only one chemistry lab is required, and chemistry 211, the concurrent lab with 210, will fulfill your lab requirement for the CoE.
I placed into Chemistry 210 on the Chemistry Placement Exam. Will I receive credit for Chemistry 130?
No. You do not receive college credit for the U-M Chemistry Placement Exam.
I placed into Chem 210/211, but it’s not required for my intended major. Do I still have to take this course?
The Chemistry placement test is a suggestion, and not a hard rule. Chem 210/211 (Organic Chemistry) is only required for Chemical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and pre-health. If you are not interested in pursuing any of these options and do not have AP/IB/A-Level chemistry credit, then you can take Chem 130/125/126 (General Chemistry) instead.
