How long will it take an incoming freshman to graduate?

Both the B.A. and B.S. degrees offered by the Department can be completed in four years with the normal course load.  Sample four-year schedules are available for the Chemistry B.A. program, the Chemistry B.S. program, and the Biochemistry B.S. program. For the Chemistry and Biochemistry majors it is crucial to pay attention to pre-requisites and when courses are offered. It is common for a required Chemistry course to only be offered once a year so failing to take a course could potentially push your degree back an entire year. It is recommended to make yearly appointments to see the undergraduate academic advisor to check on your status. To make an appointment you can contact the Undergraduate Advising Office at or 805-893-5675.
