Chemistry Placement

All first year students who plan to take a Chemistry course at anytime during their time at Swarthmore should participate in our online placement process in July and August. You will not be allowed to register for a Chemistry course at Swarthmore unless you complete this process.  In July, you will receive instructions on the online placement process.
