Please note: For each general and organic chemistry class, students must register for both lecture and lab sessions. Students who successfully complete the lecture and lab earn 5-units for each class. Lab sessions start on the first day of class.   This series is offered at a highly accelerated pace.  The successful student is one who is motivated, focused, and has few distractions.  Distractions include sports activities, vacations, part-time jobs, and other summer classes.  For all inquiries and requests regarding the summer Chemistry courses, please contact Elizabeth Cauley.
