Applying to the Program

Courses and Lecture Sections Supported

Please note that we will be accepting fall 2021 applications about one week before the fall semester starts.

Our program has resources for students in all lectures of Chemistry 103, Chemistry 104, and Chemistry 108, and provides support in some lecture sections of Chemistry 343 and Chemistry 345.

During Spring 2021 the CLC is supporting Chemistry 103 (Lecture 1, Lamont; Lecture 2, Weaver), Chemistry 104 (Lecture 1, Zelewski; Lecture 2, Zelewski; Lecture 3, Block; Lecture 4, Gustin; Lecture 5, Hooker; Lecture 6, Fredrickson), and Chemistry 108 (Lecture 1, Hooker). We will also be working with Chemistry 343 (Lecture 1, Wickens) and Chemistry 345 (Lecture 1, Gellman; Lecture 3, Ellison).

We welcome as many students as we can but with ~4,100 introductory and organic students and 9 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, 104, and 108 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 Spring 2021 our program is not able to support Chemistry 116 (Lecture 1, Yethiraj), Chemistry 343 (Lecture 2, Miles; Lecture 3, Bowman) and Chemistry 345 (Lecture 2, Martell; Lecture 4, Esselman; Lecture 5, Stowe; Lecture 6, Buller). The CLC 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 is closed for general drop-in. We may do some in-person appointments and some in-person instruction.

Who we work with

We welcome as many students as we can, but do not have the resources to support all students seeking support 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 students on academic probation, first generation low income students, underrepresented students, 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, new transfer students, returning veterans, 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

Before Covid-19, most students applied by dropping by our program (Room B311 of Chemistry now moved to Room 4330 of Medical Sciences Center) 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 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’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.
