Chemistry Placement Test

Chemistry placement is required to register for chemistry classes. Placement 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.

The chemistry modules do not need to be completed in one sitting. You are allowed to start the test and return to it later. The system will save your place and you can continue where you left off. Calculators are allowed, but no other resources.
