Chemistry requires more than the usual amount of study and practice. Satisfactory completion of the course prerequisites is very important.
No, only the department chair can give you permission to enroll in a closed class. Contact the academic chairs at the nearest campus.
In general, it's not a good idea. Certainly not if one class is the prerequisite for the other. Occasionally a student will retake a chemistry course for a better grade while simultaneously taking a later class, such as organic chemistry. But in general, one should not take more than two science courses with labs in one semester.
Very important! In a sense, a chemistry course is an applied mathematics course. Because of this, it is essential that students have a solid background in basic math and algebra. One of the main reasons that students have difficulty in chemistry courses is that they have not satisfactorily completed course prerequisites.
Yes. The labs are not offered separately at MCC but instead are integrated with the course in a four semester hour format. Since the lab is part of the course and your course grade, you are required to take it.
For supplemental help in specialized programs of study, students should contact their instructors for additional assistance and study group opportunities.
Always feel free to contact any of the Chemistry Faculty at Mohave Community College. It is very important to know that you are registering for the correct course with regard to your major and to clearly understand the course prerequisites and content before registering.
Both Fundamental Chemistry (CHM 130) and General Chemistry (CHM 151) will satisfy the chemistry requirements for admission to the Nursing Program at MCC. If you plan to go on for a B.S.N. degree, be sure to check the specific requirements of the nursing school you plan to attend as requirements do vary.
Yes. The CHM 130 (Fundamental Chemistry), CHM 151 (General Chemistry I) and CHM 152 (General Chemistry II) courses can be used to meet the General Education Core curriculum requirement for science at MCC and most universities.
In general, yes. Depending on your major, your department may require specific courses. For example, if you are majoring in a science subject such as chemistry or biology, CHM 130 (Fundamental Chemistry) could transfer as a science credit but would not meet the chemistry requirement for that major. Science majors should take CHM 151 and CHM 152 (General Chemistry I and II) instead. Most of the time there is no problem with transferring MCC chemistry courses to other universities, but for science courses particularly you should always check the transfer policy of the university to which you intend to transfer.
