Chemistry Placement

Chemistry placement is determined based on results from the Math placement test. The Math placement test will help you and your advisor decide which chemistry class you are ready for at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. Transfer students who have completed a chemistry class at a previous institution will be placed into appropriate U of M chemistry courses based on that preparation. Consult with your advisor at orientation. 

Chemistry is not a required class for most students, but it is one of many options available to fulfill the physical science with lab liberal education requirement.
