A course with prerequisites or co-requisites.
If a student has taken CHEM 2535 Organic Chemistry prior to adding a degree in chemistry, a minimum grade of “B” (3.0) or better is required to substitute CHEM 2535 Organic Chemistry as CHEM 2565 Principles of Organic Chemistry. "If a student has taken CHEM 2536 Organic Chemistry prior to adding a degree in chemistry, a minimum grade of "B" (3.0) or better is required to substitute CHEM 2536 Organic Chemistry as CHEM 2566 Principles of Organic Chemistry."
Since CHEM 2545 Organic Chemistry Laboratory-CHEM 2546 Organic Chemistry Laboratory does not satisfy the prerequisite for CHEM 2556 Organic Synthesis and Techniques Lab (due to training on specific instrumentation), if a student adds a CHEM BS degree after completing CHEM 2545 Organic Chemistry Laboratory-CHEM 2546 Organic Chemistry Laboratory, two or more credits of CHEM 4994 Undergraduate Research may substitute for CHEM 2556 Organic Synthesis and Techniques Lab to meet the requirement.
MATH 1225 Calculus of a Single Variable−MATH 1226 Calculus of a Single Variable1 and PHYS 2305 Foundations of Physics−PHYS 2306 Foundations of Physics1 are also required of all Polymer Chemistry Majors within the B.S. Degree Program in Chemistry. These courses are listed in the Pathways to General Education section.
This checksheet has no hidden prerequisites, although some of the courses listed are prerequisites for other courses. Please see your advisor or consult the Undergraduate Course Catalog for more information. Please note that Chemistry majors are expected to be “calculus-ready” upon the start of their curriculum.
Students who did not successfully complete at least two years of a single foreign, classical, or sign language during high school must successfully complete six credit hours of a single foreign, classical, or sign language at the college level. Courses taken to meet this requirement do not count toward the hours required for graduates. Please consult the Undergraduate Catalog for details.
Upon having attempted 72 credits, student must have completed

Polymer chemistry majors must maintain an in-major GPA of 2.0. If a polymer chemistry major fails to meet this requirement for one academic term the student will be placed on Policy 91 (Satisfactory Progress Towards Degree) probation. Failure to meet the standard for two consecutive semesters will result in a Policy 91 suspension.
Polymer Chemistry majors must earn a grade of “C” or better in CHEM 1055 General Chemistry for Chemistry Majors, CHEM 1056 General Chemistry for Chemistry Majors, and CHEM 2565 Principles of Organic Chemistry.
Graduation requires completion of a minimum of 120 credit hours with a GPA of 2.0 or greater for all hours attempted. In addition, students must have an in-major GPA of 2.0 or greater counting all required chemistry courses and chemistry electives. The in-major CHEM GPA excludes Chemistry in Context (CHEM 1015 Chemistry in Context, CHEM 1016 Chemistry in Context, CHEM 1025 Introduction to Chemistry Laboratory, CHEM 1026 Introduction to Chemistry Laboratory), First-Year Experience (CHEM 1004 First Year Experience in Chemistry), and Chemistry Problem Solving Skills (CHEM 2984 Special Study). No more than 6 hours of CHEM 2974 Independent Study, CHEM 4974 Independent Study, and CHEM 4994 Undergraduate Research will be included in a student's in-major GPA.
