CHEMICAL PHYSICS/BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

Students majoring in Chemical Physics must maintain an average GPA of 2.75 in the required coursework for the major to remain in the program.  All transfer students must have a minimum GPA of 2.75 in their Chemistry and Physics courses.  All students majoring in this program may take a required class only twice at Lewis University.  If a student has not achieved a minimum of a C after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.

All Chemical Physics students will take the core courses listed and then branch out into either the chemistry or physics track.
