Organic Chemistry

Chemist in LabSatisfy your Organic Chemistry Requirement in Just 10 Weeks this Summer!

  Request Information

Many pre-professional students need to take two semesters of organic chemistry with a lab. CSUDH College of Continuing and Professional Education offers a 10-week series of intensive summer classes that satisfies this requirement. Because students are focused on a single class, they often perform better than by taking the classes with a full course load.

The CSUDH College of Continuing and Professional Education has offered this program since 1977. Students from colleges all over Southern California and the US have taken the course and transferred the credit into their university. In addition, the classes help prepare students for the MCAT and DAT exams.

Registration instructions will be posted soon.

For questions, email: learn@csudh.edu or call 310-243-2075.

Note: CSUDH is NOT responsible for accommodations before or during Organic Chemistry classes during the summer term.  Seeking accommodations in near-by hotels is recommended. Classes will begin on time, as scheduled, and late or lack of participation for accommodation issues may affect the students’ learning outcomes.


Admitted CSUDH students may register beginning Wednesday, March 13, 2024.

Students from other schools may register beginning Monday, March 25, 2024.
