If you are currently enrolled in CHEM 1411, do not currently have credit for CHEM1410, and plan to withdraw (or already have dropped or withdrawn) from CHEM1410, then we strongly encourage you to drop the lab (CHEM 1411) as well, provided it does not drop you below 12 credits. Please also be aware that without credit for CHEM 1410, you will not be able to enroll in CHEM 1420 and/or 1421. (The above policy also applies to CHEM 1610/1611, CHEM 1810/1811, CHEM 1420/1421, CHEM 1620/1621, CHEM 1820/1821, CHEM 2410/2311/2411, CHEM 2810/2811, CHEM 2420/2321/2421.)
