Grenfell Campus (2011/2012)
10.5 Chemistry

Attendance for all Chemistry Laboratory sessions is mandatory. Failure to attend may result in a failing grade or deregistration from the course.

Students are strongly advised to complete the Chemistry sequence appropriate to their stream (Chemistry 1200/1001 or 1010/1011 or 1011/1031 or 1050/1051) on the campus they first attend prior to transfer to another campus. Consult the credit restrictions listed under the St. John's Campus Department of Chemistry section of the University Calendar.

Chemistry courses are designated by CHEM.
