CHM 111: for non-science majors; no previous chemistry is necessary; CHM 111 fulfills the MPF natural science requirement and laboratory requirement.

CHM 141, 141R, 142, 144, 145: lectures and laboratories for students preparing for careers in health professions and sciences, engineering, or science teaching. See note below about math placement scores.

CHM 141 or 141H, and 142H or 142M: lectures for students majoring in chemistry or biochemistry. CHM 144M or 144H and 145M or 145H: laboratories students majoring in chemistry or biochemistry majors. See note below about math placement scores.

Math placement scores are required for placement into any CHM 14x courses. With a score of 12 or higher on the MP1 test you may enroll in CHM 141 or 141H. With a score of 8-11 on the MP1 test you must enroll in CHM 141R (4 credit hours; 3 lecture, 1 recitation). If your MP1 score is 7 or lower you must complete a math course before enrolling in the CHM 14x series. See an adviser to choose an appropriate math course.
