1.     Do I still have to take Chem30A for the major if I have taken Chem1A?

No. If you have taken a more advanced Chemistry class, then you do not have to take Chem30A.

2.     Can I be exempt from Kin100W?

Only if you have taken and passed 100W in a different major, can you be exempt. But 100W is required by the major and must be taken.

3.      If I participate in a sport/physical activity can I get the 2 units of PE required by the university to be waived?

If you are involved in an intercollegiate sport, 1 unit of PE is waived. However, all students are required to take the 2 units of PE.
