Courses in the College of Natural Sciences are demanding. To help you prepare for college-level chemistry courses at UT Austin, the College of Natural Sciences (CNS) and the Department of Chemistry require the readiness package. The package provides personal and computer-based support as you review topics in preparation for Chemistry 301.
We recommend that complete the initial ALEKS Chemistry Assessment before you arrive for Orientation. You are required to take the Chemistry Warm-up before purchasing ALEKS.
After purchasing ALEKS Chemistry, you will have 6 weeks to work in the learning mode in ALEKS to improve your score. You may also utilize the Quest learning materials to increase your Chemistry knowledge. You must earn an 85% on ALEKS Chemistry by August 14 at 11:59 pm or you will be dropped from CH301.

You will need your EID and a credit card to purchase the UT Chemistry Assessment package. If you have not completed the warm up, you will not be able to check out.
