# A minimum average of "C" is required in chemistry courses.

##A minimum grade of "C" is required.

* Based on SAT/ACT results, a student may be required to take Reading 101 and/or Reading 102. Each reading course yields one hour credit and must be taken during the first year of enrollment. Additionally, a student may be required to take English 100, a 3 credit hour course. A minimum grad of "C" is required in English 100 and each Reading course.

** For certification by the American Chemical Society; a student must pass Chemistry 513, Chemistry 541, and an additional six credit hours of advanced chemistry (e.g., undergraduate research and/or specified 500-level courses). A student may choose to take six credit hours of advanced physics or six credit hours of advanced mathematics or a combination of these subjects as a replacement for advanced chemistry.
