Courses

In the General Chemistry courses having both lecture and laboratory components that must be taken
concurrently, a minimum grade of C is required in all the corequisite-linked courses in order to meet
course and program requirements. If satisfactory grades (A, B, or C) are earned in all of the components,
the appropriate grade will be issued for each course. If an unsatisfactory grade (D or F) is earned in
any of the linked courses, the lowest substandard grade will be issued for all three courses. If an
incomplete (I) is earned in any of the linked courses, the incomplete will be issued for all three courses.
