This program follows the recommendations of the American Chemical Society and is intended for students who plan to go to graduate school or enter industry.  A grade of "C" or better must be earned in a prerequisite course in order to advance to the next course in the sequence. 

A chemistry course may be taken only twice at Lewis University.  If a student has not achieved a minimum of "C" after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class at Lewis.

Chemistry majors may not double major in Chemical Physics or Biochemistry.
