Online Continuing and Distance Studies Courses in Chemistry

There are four online Chemistry courses offered by Arts and Science Online at Queen’s University in the Spring/Summer terms: 

CHEM 113 – General Chemistry I                             May 10 - June 21, 2021

CHEM 114 – General Chemistry II                           July 5 - August 13, 2021

CHEM 281 – General Organic Chemistry I               May 10 - June 21, 2021

CHEM 285 – General Organic Chemistry II             July 5 - August 13, 2021

These courses are primarily for students who are NOT in degree programs at Queen’s University, as CHEM 113, 114, and 285 do not, at present, have a lab component.  If, however, you have taken CHEM 112 or 282 previously, and failed the lecture component, but completed the lab component above the required threshold, you may use CHEM 113 + CHEM 114 to repeat CHEM 112 (with your lab exemption) and use CHEM 285 to repeat CHEM 282 (with your lab exemption).  The online version of CHEM 281 is identical to the on-campus version of the course and may be taken as part of degree plans in Biology or Life Sciences at Queen’s University.  Students in Chemistry or Biochemistry degree plans should NOT take CHEM 281 or CHEM 282 (285).
