  • Note: Register for 1 lecture, quiz & 1 lab. Concurrent enrollment in CHEM 050 or passing of Chemistry and Math Placement tests. All students are required to take both Chemistry and Math Placement tests. All 105a labs are currently on waitlist. To be added to the waitlist, please email Dr. Skibo (skibo@usc.edu) with your name, USC ID, and ALL the lab days/times (not section numbers) that fit in your schedule. Once you are on the waitlist, check your email daily. Please come to lecture next week even if you are not enrolled yet. For lecture questions, email coord105@chemmail.usc.edu. This course carries GE credit but it is intended for a specific group of students rather than a general student audience. It is part of the curriculum for majors and pre-professional students.
