❑ 15 credits of upper-division chemistry courses

  •     Up to 6 upper-division credits may overlap and be applied to both the chemistry minor and the student's major degree requirements.

    • Course credits may not be split to equal 6.  Meaning, you may not apply CHEM 351 (4 credits) and 2 credits from CHEM 352 (which is a 4 credit course) to equal 6 credits, in the interest of avoiding overlap, additional course work, etc.
