 Chemistry Articulations, Revised

Print Version Print

Change in General Chemistry Articulations Effective Fall 2007

Chemistry at the 100 level (CH 104, 105, 106 or CH 121, 122, 123) will no longer be equivalent to CH 121, 122, 123 at OSU with the following exceptions:

CH 121, 122, 123 at Chemeketa, Linn-Benton, and Treasure Valley Community Colleges will still be equivalent to CH 121, 122, 123 at OSU.

These changes are being made because the topics and level of coverage in the 100-level sequences do not match the CH 121, 122, 123 sequence at OSU. The CH 104–106 sequence typically is based on a general/organic/biochemistry (GOB) textbook rather than a traditional general chemistry textbook.

The above 100-level courses do transfer to OSU as lower-division chemistry (LDT CH) credits and will fulfill the OSU baccalaureate core requirement for physical science courses.

A 100-level, one-year chemistry courses sequence from a community college that does not articulate to OSU as CH 121, 122, 123,

  1. is not allowed as a prerequisite for organic chemistry at OSU (CH 331 or CH 334)
  2. does not fulfill the OSU chemistry minor requirement of one year of general chemistry
  3. usually will not fulfill the requirements for a major that requires a one-year general chemistry sequence.

Students should contact the academic advisor in their major field of study at OSU if they have any questions about what will be accepted. General questions can be directed to Dr. James Ingle, Department of Chemistry, at 541-737-6743 or james.ingle@oregonstate.edu.

Footnotes:

a LDT CH indicates that one or more of the courses in the sequence transfer with no equivalent OSU number. These courses transfer as lower-division transfer (LDT) chemistry (CH) credits with the course title and credits being the same as the original CC course. Bold indicates a change from before 2007.

b The articulation for organic chemistry is only valid if the entire sequence is taken at the CC and transferred because there is not a direct correspondence between individual courses. If only CH 241 is taken at the CC and transferred, a student must start with CH 331 at OSU. If only CH 241 and 242 are transferred, a student must still take CH 332 and CH 337 to complete the non-majors organic sequence at OSU.

c Because the lectures and labs are separate courses with specific course numbers, all three labs and all three lectures must be taken so that the articulation to OSU is CH 331, 332, 337. This requirement also applies to the policy of obtaining upper-division credit based on the ACS exam. Note that the articulation of the lectures is LDT CH + CH 331 + CH 332. A student who completes the lecture sequence but not the labs can enroll in CH 337 at OSU.

d Lower-division courses that meet upper-division requirements will be represented as CH LDT.  The courses may be applied to prerequisite checking through MyDegrees but do not count as upper-division credit for Academic Regulation 25 c.1.
