CHE208/CHE208D is a one-semester course that meets the requirements of CHE113/CHE113D and CHE214/CHE215. Students taking CHE208/CHE208D may choose an elective in the spring of their freshman year. 

2

Students must complete through the second semester of a first year language course or equivalent (Check the catalog for details of this option.)

This program assumes that a student will use CHE113/CHE113D and MAT124M to meet the general education Laboratory Science and Mathematics requirements. 

Most financial aid packages stipulate 12 credits/semester; Minnesota state grants are reduced when credit load falls below 15 credits/semester. (Interim credits may be split between fall and spring for state grant purposes only.)
