Early Progress Policy

Majors in the School of Natural Sciences are competitive and space is limited. Students must make appropriate degree progress to remain in any Natural Sciences major. Students in the Natural Sciences must meet the following requirements to continue in the School:

All students must pass the following courses with a C- or better, prior to the start of the third regular (Fall/Spring) semester. If they fail to do this, they are ineligible for continued enrollment in a Natural Sciences major and are moved to undeclared status.

  • Either MATH 005 or MATH 011 or MATH 021
  • Either CHEM 001 or CHEM 002

Students may repeat a course only one time (for a total of two attempts to earn a C- or better).
If students do not complete these requirements, they may take these courses at another institution and petition to be readmitted to the School of Natural Sciences.

For information on returning to the School of Natural Sciences after being demajored, please see Demajored Information.
