* Continuation in the Biochemistry/Chemistry Major


A minimum of a C grade in CHM 110 - General Chemistry 2  is required in order to take chemistry and biochemistry courses above the 100-level. A student who repeats CHM 209 - Organic Chemistry I  must earn a minimum grade of C in the second attempt in order to remain in a Chemistry or Biochemistry major.

A student who does not earn a C or higher in CHM 110  may retake the course to remain a degree candidate in the major.  A student who does not earn a C or higher in the second attempt of CHM 110  and/or CHM 209  must meet with the Department Chair and the Advising Center to help the student choose a major that will lead to successful degree completion. If the student requires further assistance, the chair will refer the student to the Dean.
