Note that MIT does not offer AP Credit for Chemistry. The only way to fulfill the Chemistry GIR other than taking one of the MIT subjects is by passing the Chemistry Advanced Standing Exam offered during Orientation.

For more information about the Chemistry GIR subjects, check out the websites for the Department of Chemistry or the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Online Subject Listing and Schedule.
