Labs for non-science majors
You’ll benefit from online labs thanks to the flexibility they provide for you to learn at your own pace. These labs are delivered through onlinechemlabs.com, where you’ll be exposed to a variety of learning tools.
Become immersed in an active learning environment where exploration is the guiding theme. In a simulated laboratory, you’ll review concepts, explore modern methods, develop lab techniques, apply data analysis and develop teamwork skills.
Labs for science majors
Chemistry labs for science majors are offered at OSU’s main campus in Corvallis, Oregon. To minimize time required on-campus, Ecampus students may opt to take each lab during the summer in an intensive, three-day format - which would be nine consecutive days for all three labs - or not at all. Check with your advisor to determine whether labs are required for your course of study.
The CH 231/232/233 online lecture sequence combined with the CH 261/262/263 lab sequence satisfies OSU's undergraduate bacc core requirements. Labs must be taken in order.
|Online Lecture Course||On-Campus Lab Course||Notes|
|CH 231||CH 261|
|CH 232||CH 262||CH 231 is prerequisite for CH 232.|
|CH 233||CH 263||CH 232 is prerequisite for CH 233.|
Please note: Lab courses CH 261, 262 and 263 are offered summer term at OSU campus for Ecampus students and follow the OSU Corvallis Campus tuition model for in-state tuition. If you need labs but prefer not to travel, you may be able to find General Chemistry labs offered separately at an institution near your home. Refer to the Schedule of Classes for labs offered in other terms for on-campus students.
