Requirements for admission are (a) a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and a satisfactory score on the GRE Aptitude Test (a TOEFL score of 525 when applicable); (b) 20 hours of approved undergraduate chemistry, including 12 advanced; (c) 8 hours of approved physics and 6 hours of calculus. Students not satisfying these requirements may be admitted conditionally. The department, in examining the applicant's prerequisites, may accept equivalent hours or require additional work. An entering graduate student is normally subjected to four placement examinations in organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry that are used for advising the student's beginning course work.
