*Students taking CHEM 101/L at CSUN must satisfy the prerequisite by scoring 40 on the Chemistry Placement Test (contact the CSUN Testing Center for details and test dates.) The prerequisite may also be satisfied by completing CHEM 100 AT CSUN with minimum grade of “C”. If students take CHEM 100 at CSUN the number of elective units needed is reduced by 3 units.

**If needed, select GE Upper Division courses that also satisfy: (1) IC: Information Competence, (2) GE Comparative Cultural Studies, and/or (3) GE Upper Division Title 5 American History Institutions and Ideals and/or GE Upper Division Title 5 US Constitution and California State and Local Government.

***Upper division courses in the major plus upper division GE courses total 37 units. A minimum of 3 units of additional electives must be upper division (300- and 400-level) to satisfy the 40 unit upper division minimum requirement for the degree.
