Chemistry Dual Enrollment
Answered

Hi everyone! This summer (my freshman year summer) I am planning to take chemistry at our local community college, which I should be able to do even as an underclassmen. However, I am wondering if there are any prerequisites I should know about? I am currently in algebra 1, biology, and I am planning to take geometry over the summer, so am I all set for this college class? If I take chemistry this summer I would be able to take AP Bio as a Sophomore, AP Physics as a Junior, and then have an extra space in my Senior year schedule, which I need. Is there anything I should know about dual enrollment, specifically for chemistry and do you all have any advice?

Hi!

For your first question, I would check the course catalog for your local college. Go to the course you want to register for and check if the course requires a prerequisite. It really depends on what specific course you want to take. If your school has a coordinator with your local college, you can also talk to them and ask for help!

For your question about AP Bio and Physics, I would talk to your school counselor. I'm currently a senior, and my counselor has been really helpful in outlining my schedules over the years. Your school counselor can even help with moving you to AP Bio as a sophomore or any other class if they see that you have all the requirements done.

I'm sorry I can't give you a more specific answer, but it really depends on each college, course, and high school. Hope this helps though!
