It is desirable that students complete the preparatory work in chemistry before undertaking work in this department in the University. To students who have not taken chemistry in the high schools, an opportunity to do preparatory work is offered in the Summer Session.

Courses 1, 2, 3, and 4 are prerequisite to all other Courses in Chemistry. Course 5A or 5B is prerequisite to Courses 9 to 31.

Laboratory deposits are fifteen dollars a half-year for Course 3 or 4, and ten to thirty dollars a half-year for the other laboratory courses. The average amount returned to the student at the end of the halfyear, after deducting for cost of materials, gas, etc., actually used, and for breakage of apparatus, is about three dollars in Course 3 or 4, and about five dollars in the other courses.
