The Associate of Science with an emphasis in Chemistry and Pre‐Chemical Engineering at NCCC provides the general education courses normally taken in the first two years at a four‐year college or university, with major in chemistry or chemical engineering. Study in college chemistry, calculus, and physics will prepare the student for the junior level at four‐year universities. Furthermore, it will equip a student with the basic chemistry techniques and technology used in chemistry labs.

Prerequisites and Tuition

The student will need to demonstrate proficiencies in reading, English, and mathematics based on the COMPASS assessment test, ACT or SAT scores, or by taking the recommended/required classes. Some of the courses in this curriculum have specific prerequisites.

Minimum TOEFL or IELTS Score: 61 IBT or 6.0

Tuition: 12,700 USD
