ABOUT CHEMISTRY COURSES AT MAYVILLE STATE

Do you need General Chemistry? Do you need a year of General Chemistry so that you can enter a Chemistry program or fulfill a different program’s requirement, but can’t fit it into your schedule or need to do it online?  Mayville State University offers General Chemistry I and General Chemistry II online and meets the requirements of many Chemistry/essential studies/nursing/health/engineering programs!

We are pleased to offer ONLINE labs that are full-contact, non-virtual labs to give you the hands-on experience required by most of these programs.

Maybe you only need the lecture or only the lab? Not a problem, you can enroll in either or both!  Of course, it is beneficial to take both simultaneously because they are coordinated to work together.

While these courses are “asynchronous” they do still have deadlines that students will need to meet.  You must enroll for a semester term and complete assignments over the duration of the semester.  So, the courses provide structure to help guide the students through the entirety of the course.  You need to meet the deadlines as missed assignments are missed points.

General Chemistry I is intended to fulfill needs of students from NUMEROUS backgrounds or even essential studies/prereq courses.  Topics for General Chemistry I include everything from the Scientific Method, to Nomenclature, Chemical Reactivity, Ionic and Covalent Bonding, and the Periodic Table.  These are also incorporated into the at-home labs so you cover the material numerous times and gain added, important exposure.
