Advanced Placement Test
Incoming students who have attained an AP chemistry score of 4 will be entitled to four scientific inquiry credits without lab, as outlined in the McDaniel Plan. Students who attained an AP chemistry score of 5 will be entitled to four scientific inquiry credits with lab. For students who are entitled to college credit as outlined above and who decide to take introductory chemistry courses, those with an AP chemistry score of 4 will start with the courses CHE-1101 and CHE-1001, while those with an AP score of 5 will start with the courses CHE-1102 and CHE-1002.
Before a student may register for CHE 1101, the student is required to either (1) place above MAT 1002, OR, (2) register for MAT 1001 Basic Mathematics (if deficient in arithmetic) and/or MAT 1002 Basic Algebra (if deficient in algebra) as a co-requisite(s) and successfully complete the requirement(s) of the mathematics course(s).
Placement above MAT 1002 is required before a student may register for any course in Chemistry except CHE 1101.
