Eight-Semester Degree Program

Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements of the program. Core requirement hours may vary by individual, based on placement and previous credit granted. Once all core requirements are met, students may substitute a three-hour (or more) general elective in place of a core area. Students must complete at least 124 hours and this must be considered when scheduling upper-level hours in the senior year.

This program meets the minimum requirements for certification by the American Chemical Society if CHEM 3813 (or CHEM 4813H/CHEM 4843H or CHEM 5813/CHEM 5843) is included.
