CREDITS TO TOTAL A MINIMUM OF
Candidates for a BS in chemistry must achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 for all chemistry courses taken. Repeated Chemistry courses will be counted only once in the calculation of the chemistry GPA. The calculation of the chemistry course GPA (2.00 minimum required for graduation) for candidates for the BS degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry will not include grades earned for lower level subdisciplinary courses taken after a higher level course in the same subdiscipline has been taken and passed with a grade of C or higher. Likewise, freshman-level courses may not be used by upperclassmen as GPA enhancers after those required for graduation have been taken.
will be regarded as exceptions to the foregoing prohibitions, since their subject matter coverage is considerably different than that found in higher level courses.
