Admission to the College of Science


          Applicants must complete at least 24 hours with a
      cumulative GPR of at least a 3.00 from the appropriate
      tracks. Applicants will not be admitted without completing
      the first two semesters of courses in their declared major
      with a 3.00 GPR or better in those courses. For Biology
      majors, 8 hours of Chemistry I and II must also be
      completed with an average of at least a 3.00. For Chemistry
      and Physics majors, 8 hours of calculus I and II must also
      be completed with an average of at least a 3.00. The
      College of Science will consider second choice majors if it
      appears there is some relationship to the first major choice.
      For example, if the first choice major is Chemical
      Engineering and second choice major is Chemistry, a
      student would be considered for admission to Chemistry.
