All students who register in CHE 2A, CHE 2AH, or CHE 3A are required to satisfy the Chemistry Placement Requirement. Students who do not satisfy the placement requirement to remain enrolled in general chemistry will be administratively dropped from the course by the Department of Chemistry no matter what anyone else, including an adviser or an instructor, may tell you.
The Student Academic Success Center provides review materials, workshops, drop-in and group tutoring, and additional resources. For a quarterly listing of graduate student tutors, see Tutors in Chemistry
All students enrolled in chemistry lab courses are required to follow the safety rules. These rules are mandatory and expected from all students at all times, including the FIRST DAY of lab. Please familiarize yourself with the information before your first scheduled lab.
Of special note is the required safety apparel:
- ANSI-compliant, indirectly-vented, chemical splash safety goggles
- 100% cotton lab coat
- Closed-toe, closed-heel shoes
- Clothing that completely covers your arms and legs
Students are also required to have a current lab manual. Manuals are provided below in PDF form for viewing and downloading. They are also available for purchase at the UC Davis Bookstore.
