**Students may be required to take Mathematics 2312 before enrollment in Mathematics 2313. If so, this will reduce the number of elective hours.

Graduation Requirement for the Chemistry Major

Candidates for the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry are required to complete a Major Field Test (MFT) in Chemistry in order to be eligible for graduation. The Division of Extended Studies administers the MFT by appointment throughout the year. A student is eligible to take the MFT upon completion of all required chemistry credits or during the semester immediately prior to graduation. The exam score will be part of the student’s record.

Graduation Requirement for the Chemistry Major with Certification in Chemistry or Physical Science

Candidates for the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry who are seeking secondary teacher certification in physical science are required to complete the TExES physical science certification exam for physics/chemistry certification in order to be eligible for graduation. A student is eligible to take this exam upon completion of all required chemistry and physics credits or during the semester immediately prior to graduation. This exam is administered through the College of Education.
