Permits for classes

You will note on the registrar's course listing that most upper level Chemistry courses require a permit. Learn how to seek a permit for Chemistry courses or request a permit to take a class without the corresponding corequisite.

Adding or dropping a course

Chemistry courses typically consist of co-requisites lecture and labs courses. Due to this fact, the add/drop process for Chemistry varies from other departments.
