Applying to the Program

Courses and Lecture Sections Supported

Our program has resources for students in Chemistry 103, Chemistry 104, and Chemistry 108, and some support for organic chemistry.

During Fall 2022 the CLC is supporting Chemistry 103 (Lecture 1, Zelewski; Lecture 2, Zelewski; Lecture 3, Zhou; Lecture 4, Brunold; Lecture 5, Hooker; Lecture 6, Hooker; Lecture 7, Gustin; Lecture 8, Yang) and Chemistry 104 (Lecture 1, Weaver; Lecture 2, Bertram). The CLC will also be working with Chemistry 343 (Lecture 1, Miles; Lecture 3, Spiewak; Lecture 5, Spiewak) and Chemistry 345 (Lecture 1, Yoon).

We welcome as many students as we can but with ~5,500 introductory and organic students and 10 staff members, our program does not have sufficient resources to assist all students. Though it is helpful to apply early, our program does not function on a first-come first-serve basis. Program eligibility for Chem 103 and 104 is usually determined by an interview with a staff member. (more on our mission on who we try to support…)

Courses and Lecture Sections Not Supported

Unfortunately because of limited resources, for Fall 2022 our program is not able to support Chemistry 109 (Lecture 1, Block/Schmidt; Lecture 2, Trate; Lecture 3, Pazicni), Chemistry 115 (Lecture 1, Zanni), Chemistry 341 (Lecture 1, Bowman), Chemistry 343 (Lecture 2, Boydston; Lecture 4, Esselman; Lecture 6, Owen), and Chemistry 345 (Lecture 2, Bowman). We also do not work with other advanced chemistry courses or labs (e.g., inorganic, analytical, or physical chemistry; Chem 311, 327, 329, 344, 346, 511, 561, 562, etc.).

Who we work with

We welcome as many students as we can, but do not have the resources to support all students seeking supportTwo students working together on a whiteboard in chemistry. Our program is partially funded to work with students who are enrolled in programs such as the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE), Center for Education Opportunities (CeO), PEOPLE, and Posse programs. We also try to welcome first generation students who are low income, underrepresented students of color, Chancellor Scholars, Powers Knapp Scholars, MJL Scholars, students returning after a long absence from college, students at-risk of failing the course, students re-taking the course after earning a D or F, students on academic probation, new transfer students, veterans just returning after full-time military service, and McBurney Center students. These are general guidelines and we consider each student seeking assistance on a case-by-case basis taking into account available space in our program. Though it is helpful to apply early, our program does not function on a first-come first-serve basis. Program eligibility in introductory chemistry is usually determined after meeting with a staff member.

How to Apply

Most students apply by dropping by our program (Room 4330 of the Medical Sciences Center) without an appointment between ~8:30am and ~4:30pm, or using the online application form below. We usually respond within one week or less after receiving the application though depending on the number of applications we receive it may occasionally take a little longer.

Below is a short video describing who our program supports and what support our program provides.

If you are in Chemistry 103, 104, 343 or 345, feel free to visit CLC Chemistry Resources page and select the appropriate accordion option for a large selection of chemistry resources that you may find helpful.
