Chemistry Minor

The minimum prerequisites for the chemistry minor are a B- in CHEM 101 or a B in one year of high school chemistry, and a B- in MATH 110 or equivalent (e.g., a score of 65 on ALEKS).

Students must complete all prerequisites for a CHEM course with a C- or higher before being allowed to take the course (except as noted in the course description). A student must complete each CHEM course with a C- or higher for the course to meet a chemistry minor requirement.
