  Lab Electives:
 Select two of three lab courses. The lab elective may be fulfilled with either CHEM 3380 (3 credits) or CHEM 3481 (2 credits) or one of the following [CHEM 4695 (3 credits) or CHEM 4699 (3 credits) or CHEM 4694 (no credit) or CHEM 4698 (no credit)].
Research or Internship Experience:
Either Undergraduate Research CHEM 4699
(3) or Undergraduate Internship CHEM 4695 (3) are acceptable. If research or an internship is conducted for pay / audit rather than credit (e.g., CHEM 4698 or CHEM 4694) ,
then additional free elective(s) may be substituted to achieve the required earned hours to graduate. The research or internship experience must include a final comprehensive
laboratory report. Only one Research or Internship course may be used for the Lab elective requirement. If CHEM 3481 is used, add one free elective.


 The technical elective requirement may be fulfilled by coursework in Science, Engineering, and Computing at the 3000 level or higher.

MATH 2551, MATH 2552, SLS 3110, or SLS 3120 may also be used for a Technical Elective. If a 4 credit hour course is used, one less free elective credit is required


 It is suggested students select pre-health preparation courses (SOC or PSYC).


 It is suggested students select pre-health preparation courses (BIOS, HTS, LMC, PSYC).


Courses may be applied toward completion of a minor.


 VIP courses may be used only as free electives or in place of CHEM 4699 with pre-approval from the Associate Chair for Academic Programs or their designate


 Courses taken as pass-fail may only be used in free electives.


 MATH 1554 or MATH 1564 may be used in place of MATH 1553.


A maximum of twelve credit hours of CHEM 4699 taken on a letter-grade basis are permitted for the degree program


Up to six hours of CHEM 2699 taken on a letter-grade basis may be used as free electives


CS 1371 may be used with approval of the Associate Chair for Academic Programs or their designate
