Bridging the Gap from High School to College with Chemistry

ChemBridge is a collaborative program among participating Texas high schools, the Department of Chemistry and the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin. The program allows students entering high school under HB 5 to earn six hours of college chemistry credit upon successful completion of the courses, while earning concurrent high school credit that satisfies Distinguished Level of Achievement graduation requirements and fits into applicable endorsements. For students entering high school prior to HB 5, these courses provide the same number of college credits while concurrently serving as an Advanced Measure for high school credit under the Distinguished Achievement Plan.
