Summer Chemistry Enrichment


Summer Chemistry Enrichment Opportunity!

Are you an incoming Fall 2021 student majoring in Biology? Be part of Los Angeles Valley College Summer Chemistry Enrichment Program. This is an 8 week directed study summer course to enhance your Chemistry skills.

What are the benefits of the Summer Chemistry Enrichment Course?

  • Passing of the Chemistry Readiness Test, waives your prerequisite for Chemistry 060. (This course is a prerequisite to Chemistry 101).
  • Successful enrollment into Chemistry 101 in the Fall 2021 accelerates transfer timeline. (This course is required for Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering majors).
  • Course is CSU transferable.

What dates will the session be conducted on? 

Dates: June 14 - August 8, 2021

How is the course set up? 

  • Asynchronous from June 14 to July 18, 2021
  • Students have the option to take the Chemistry 60 Readiness Test after the asynchronous (self-paced) weeks 3, 4, or 5.  Students who receive a successful pass score, thus complete the course at the end of that week. 
  • Students who do not pass the Chemistry 60 Readiness exam by week 5, will participate in online, synchronous sessions with a Chemistry Instructor for further preparation of the readiness exam at the end of the session.

Course Topics:

  • What is Chemistry?
  • Measurements
  • Matter
  • Atomic Theory
  • Chemical Compounds
  • Mole Concept
  • Chemical Reactions
  • Stoichiometry

Who can register? 

The course is targeted toward first-time incoming students who declare biology as their major.

How do I register? 

Students will need a permission number that will be provided by the STEM Office.
