  • ACS allows research via an REU or SURE as a valid research experience. If a student has a summer research experience they may take an additional chemistry elective with a lab in place of the 2 sh of CHM 499.
  • If a student has below a 3.0 average and cannot take research these 2 sh can be substituted by a course approved by the department chair. Their degree will not be certified by the ACS.
