Organic Chemistry Changes for Students Admitted Prior to FA17

Effective Fall 2017, most of the Chemistry and Biochemistry's organic chemistry courses (CHEM 140A, 140B, 140C, 143A, 143AM and their honors equivalencies) were renumbered from upper-division to lower-division (CHEM 40A, 40B, 40C, 43A, and 43AM).

The Educational Policy Committee has determined that students who were admitted to UCSD prior to Fall 2017 will be granted an exception to use CHEM 40A, 40B, 40C, 43A, and/or 43AM (or their honors equivalencies) as upper-division for all degree requirements. This will apply to major, minor, general education, and/or university requirements, so long as the lower-division version of the organic chemistry courses are completed at UCSD by Spring 2021.

Please see our FAQ for more information. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact us via the VAC or stop by during walk-in advising hours.
