Secondary School Preparation

It is suggested that students proposing to major in chemistry have the following high school preparation: one year of chemistry (preferably with laboratory work), one year of physics, and 3 1/2 years of mathematics (including elementary algebra, plane geometry, intermediate algebra, and trigonometry).

Department Writing Requirement

Students meet the department writing requirement by passing Chemistry 352, Chemistry Senior Seminar.

Minimum Competency Requirement

A grade of C- must be achieved in any required chemistry course before it can be used as a prerequisite for another course. Students who fail a course or fail to obtain the minimum grade in a pre-requisite course will be permitted to repeat the course once. D grades in courses that are not used as prerequisites require waiver approval from the department.

Students may petition the department to see if a waiver can be signed for other courses to count. Students with grades less than C+ will be unlikely to have the waiver signed.
