Course equivalencies for California colleges

Please also note the following: 

  • Although the Nutrition department accepts no more than two general chemistry courses as prerequisites, most schools require that a full year (3 quarters or 2 semesters) of general chemistry be taken before the first organic chemistry course.  We do not list the third general chemistry course offered at quarter-system schools. 
  • Although the Nutrition department accepts no more than two organic chemistry courses as prerequisites, most schools require that a full year (3 quarters or 2 semesters) of organic chemistry be taken before the first biochemistry course.  We do not require the three part Organic Chemistry series. 
  • Please contact admissions for questions about options for Biochemistry courses.
  • A note about labs: General Chemistry & Organic Chemistry coursework require labs that accompany the course. They may be part of the course or you may need to register for a separate lab section. Contact us with questions.
