If student completes CHEM 3015 The Chemistry of Organic Compounds, he/she must take 22 hours of controlled electives. If student completes CHEM 3053 Organic Chemistry, CHEM 3112 Organic Chemistry Lab and CHEM 3153 Organic Chemistry, he/she must take 19 hours of controlled electives.

Consult admissions requirements for specific professional programs.

Ensure that enough upper-division controlled electives are taken to meet the 40 hour upper-division Regents requirement.

This degree program does not meet all the Didactic Program in Dietetics academic course requirements. See the NSCI Major/Dietetics Option sheet for courses to be added.
