New Hudson Valley students may need advisement on what courses to take
to fulfill their academic and career goals. Students with limited mathematics
and chemistry background in high school are advised to take some basic
chemistry classes and college level mathematics classes if they wish to
pursue the sciences further in college.

Non-major's college chemistry course with lab:
|CHEM 105 Introductory Chemistry
|| An overview of chemistry with an interdisciplinary
Preparatory course for those not ready for an allied health major,
or needing a science with lab course:
|CHEM 100, General Chemistry/Health Sciences
||A general chemistry course with emphasis on the relevance
to the health sciences. It is useful for those needing a college level
chemistry course prior to entering an allied health major. It is not
recommended for pre-PA students or as a substitution for CHEM 110,
General Chemistry I.
High School Chemistry or College Chemistry Recommended
Non-major three credit course in science (no lab):
|CHEM 130, Biochemistry
||An overview of the principles and concepts of biochemistry.
Previous college level chemistry course work regents level high school
chemistry is recommended.
High School Chemistry and Prerequisite/Corequisite Mathematics Required
A year of college level general chemistry that is appropriate to
those planning to major in chemistry or pursue upper level chemistry courses
at a transfer school, and that is accepted by all schools:
|CHEM 110 and 111, General Chemistry I and II
||The general chemistry sequence most appropriate for
future study in chemistry and science major programs.
|CHEM 120 and 121, Freshman Chemistry I and II
||The chemistry sequence designed for future study in
the engineering science field. It is accepted as a transfer course
for future study in chemistry and science major programs.
Upper-level chemistry courses for those majoring in Chemistry. These
courses should be accepted as second-year level courses by most institutions
(but check for their individual requirements):
|CHEM 210 and 211, Organic Chemistry I and II
||Suitable for science and engineering majors.
|CHEM 205, Analytical Chemistry
||A laboratory and lecture course covering special procedures
in chemistry with an emphasis on quantitative analysis in the laboratory.
|CHEM 230, Integrated Laboratory
||A course for chemical technology majors.
