Matriculated status is reserved for students who have met competitive admission standards and who are enrolled primarily for the purpose of earning a degree. Non-matriculated students are students who are not formally admitted to the UW and who want to take courses for credit. Although matriculated students are given priority in registering for courses, non-matriculated students may enroll in courses on a space-available basis through the UW Continuum College..
Non-matriculated students who wish to take chemistry courses can obtain the departmental and the instructor’s signature on the non-matriculated registration form from the staff in Bagley Hall 303. Registration is handled by the Continuum College on the first day of the quarter and is on a space available basis. Students wishing to obtain signatures must show their prerequisites and/or placement into any Chemistry course that they are requesting. Be aware that a placement test is required for Chem 110, 120, 142, 143, 145. Information about Chemistry Placement testing can be found on our web site under the Chem Placement Exams menu. Students new to the UW that have not been issued a UW student number yet must take the Chemistry Placement test at the Office of Educational Assessment in Schmitz Hall.
