Chemistry 90 is a preparatory access course to CHEM 112/114 for students who were unable to access, or need to review, 30-level chemistry and physical science curricula. Content focuses on core concepts, terminology, problem solving strategies, and laboratory skills foundational to success in post-secondary chemistry courses and related degree paths.

Prerequisite(s): Grade 12 Diploma or equivalent
Note: Chemistry 90 fulfills prerequisite requirements for CHEM 112 and CHEM 114, though CHEM 90 is not directly equivalent to Chemistry 30. Students who complete CHEM 90 earn 3 non-degree-level credit units. This course does not contribute to the course credit unit requirements for a university degree.
