FAQ: Chem Prep Program

Am I required to complete the CPP?

Yes!  WE WANT YOU TO SUCCEED and we know that success requires preparation. CHM123 is taught at a fast pace and instructors will assume that all students have a solid background in mathematics and some fundamentals of chemistry. IT MAY BE NECESSARY FOR YOU TO REFRESH, AND PERHAPS LEARN, MATERIAL BEFORE THE START OF CLASS.  Students come to college chemistry with a variety of backgrounds and levels of preparation. UD is investing in the CPP to make certain all students entering CHM123 have the necessary background and preparation to be successful.

What happens if I don’t complete the CPP?

Students that do not complete the CPP prior to the start of class will likely find the class moves faster than can be handled. Additionally students not completing the CPP by the stated due date will lose points toward their final course grade.

What do I have to do to earn full credit?

To earn full credit a student must score 100% on the final quiz retake in OWLv2.

What if I encounter technical problems or have questions?

The OWLv2 environment provides excellent support through a Help link in the upper right corner. Additionally a link to Cengage Technical Support found at the bottom of the page is available. These should always be the first sources of help.

What if I have additional questions about why UD requires this opportunity or questions about the CHM123 course?
