NOTE:


A student who completes three BIO or CHE courses and earns a grade lower than a C- in each course before registering for CHE 600  will be identified as not making progress in the major. (Exceptions will be made for students who take medical or personal leave for the semester). Students who are not making progress in the major will not be allowed to continue as a biochemistry or chemistry major. Students cannot register for CHE 600  (Senior Project) unless their major GPA is above 2.0 and they are making progress in the major.
