Applying to the Program

Courses and Lecture Sections Supported

We have resources for students in all lectures of Chemistry 103, Chemistry 104, and Chemistry 108 and we provide support in some lecture sections of Chemistry 343 and Chemistry 345.

During Fall 2020 we are working with Chemistry 103 (Lecture 1, Hooker; Lecture 2, Brunold; Lecture 3, Hooker; Lecture 4, Zelewski; Lecture 5, Weaver; Lecture 6, Zelewski) and Chemistry 104 (Lecture 1, Cavagnero; Lecture 2, Gustin). We will also be working with Chemistry 343 (Lecture 1, Esselman; Lecture 5, Gellman) and Chemistry 345 (Lecture 1, Yoon).

We welcome as many students as we can but with ~5,500 introductory and organic students and 9 staff members, we do 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 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, we are not working with Chemistry 109 (Lecture 1, Garand; Lecture 2, Block), Chemistry 115 (Lecture 1, Schmidt), Chemistry 341 (Lecture 1, Bowman), Chemistry 343 (Lecture 2, Boydston; Lecture 3, Ellison; Lecture 4, Wang; Lecture 6, Millevolte), and Chemistry 345 (Lecture 2, Miles). 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.).

Change of operation due to Covid-19

Because of Covid-19, our office is open by appointment only and will be closed for general drop-in. We will be doing some in-person appointments and in-person instruction.

How to Apply

Before Covid-19, most students applied by dropping by our program (Room B311 of Chemistry now moved to Room 4330 of Medical Sciences Center (MSC)) without an appointment between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. Due to Covid-19 constraints we are only accepting applications online. We usually respond within one week 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.

We’re sorry we’re unable to provide in-person support for Chemistry 109. Please visit the CLC Chemistry Resources page and select the Chemistry 109 accordion option for resources we hope provide you with some great support.

Likewise, if you’re in one of the Chem 343 or Chem 345 lectures we’re unable to support please visit the CLC Chemistry Resources page and select the Chemistry 343 or 345 accordion option.
