Registering for the lab

Organic Chemistry I is designed to take lecture (CHEM1020) and lab (CHEM1020L) concurrently in order to earn four credits. For the full four credits, you must register for both CHEM1020 and CHEM1020L. For students who only need a specific portion of Organic Chemistry I, however, you have the option to take lecture only (CHEM1020 three credits) or lab only (CHEM1020L one credit).
