CHEMISTRY ACCELERATED 4+1 (BS/MS) PROGRAM

 

QULIFICATION TO CONTINUE the 4+1 PROGRAM

Students are qualified academically to participate in this Program after they finish their senior year at CSU and at any time after completing their B.S. degree if they have an overall GPA of 3.0 or better.

 

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

For the students in the 4+ 1 years program, the B.S. is awarded after the completion of a minimum of 120 credit hours and all General Education, University, College and Major Field requirements, as is the case for students in the conventional B.S. programs. The M.S. degree is earned, after the students have completed a minimum of 32 graduate credit hours and all coursework required of students in the conventional M.S. in program.

Students who have been admitted to the 5-year program after the completion of 90 hours but fail to meet subsequent 5-year program requirements (GPA 3.0) revert to conventional student status and must meet all B.S. in Chemistry requirements. Since the 4+1 program in Chemistry allows at least 21 credits of electives, the double-counted classes taken at the graduate level can be applied towards their BS degree. They may then re-apply to the conventional M.S. program. If admitted, these students are subject to conventional M.S. program policies and requirements.
