Concurrent Enrollment

Please see below for policies and procedures for enrolling in a chemistry course or lecture via Concurrent Enrollment. Pay special attention to the policies for impacted lectures and lab courses.

Non-Impacted Lectures

IMPORTANT: First check to see if your desired class is on our list of Impacted Lectures (i.e., high demand). If it is a high demand course, you must follow the steps listed under “Impacted Lectures” and NOT the steps in this section.

If you wish to enroll in a lecture course via concurrent enrollment, read and follow the steps below:

  1. Attend the CHEM lecture course/s you wish to add.
  2. Monitor schedule of classes and wait for an available seat in the course. Seats in the course will be released to students on a first-come first-serve basis.
  3. Bring your Concurrent Enrollment Card to York Hall 4010 to obtain departmental stamp to authorize your enrollment.
