Prerequisites

Prerequisites for courses in chemistry are valid for only three years. If you wish to register in a course for which the prerequisite was taken more than three years ago, you will be required to write a diagnostic test or to upgrade the prerequisite.

Students who have completed a chemistry course through an adult education program or by correspondence must obtain permission of the Chemistry Department to have the course approved as a prerequisite for Langara College chemistry courses.

Repeating a course

A chemistry course may be taken only twice, regardless of the grade earned in the first enrolment. The Department Chair, or delegate, will decide on exceptions to this rule, only on the basis of documented evidence of upgraded prerequisites.

Laboratory Requirements

The chemistry labs are an integral part of each course. It is Chemistry Department policy that there are no make-up labs. Failure to satisfactorily complete the laboratory requirements may result in a failing grade for the course.

Attendance at the first lab in all chemistry courses is compulsory.
