Undergraduate advising with a departmental faculty advisor is strongly recommended for all Chemistry majors on an annual basis, and especially those that have newly declared Chemistry as their major. Please contact Deanne Arensberg to schedule your appointment. Follow this link for the for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Information & Policies web site.
Frequently Asked Questions
The CredTran tool is helpful to get an idea of which courses will transfer from a variety of universities nationwide. We understand that there are exceptions and a course audit will need to be requested for those courses or schools not on the list. Contact Deanne Arensberg with specific questions.
Please be aware, that courses taken at a community college do not transfer as Jr/Sr hours, even if they might satisfy a particular Jr/Sr course requirement. Discussion of possible solutions should be held with one of our advisors.
ADV-WELC – First year advising hold. All students in the College receive this hold to assure that students receive at least two semesters of advising. Deanne Arensberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) is able to remove this hold. She will need confirmation that you met with your advisor.
ADV-CSRD – Non-declared major hold. Students who have not yet declared a major after 45 credits receive this hold and again at 75 credits for non-declared in a major. The notice will give instructions on how to lift this hold. Once you declare a major in chemistry, Deanne Arensberg can remove this hold.
ADV-GRAD – Candidate for Graduation hold. Seniors (90+ h) receive this hold (perhaps every semester until they graduate). Students must read the accompanying Academic Notice in the Kyou Advising Portal to click on a link to an online degree progress assessment. The hold will be removed by a College graduation advisor after the assessment is completed, normally in 1-2 business days.Graduation Information
Students that have applied for graduation will need to meet with an advisor to have your Major/Minor Certification form signed. Graduation application information can be found at the link here. Please contact Deanne Arensberg to make an appointment or stop by the office located in 2010 Malott Hall.
Chemistry Major Advisors
Undergraduate Program Assistant
Chemistry Department Policy
First-year students will be advised by the Graduate Affairs Committee for the Fall semester upon their arrival and for the Spring semester in October. After the first two semesters, each student must consult with their research adviser before the beginning of each semester about future enrollments. Students' advisers will check to be certain the necessary requirements are being met and will answer any questions or help students solve any problems which might arise.
Graduate Program Assistant
Advising of graduate students is primarily conducted within the graduate programs by program staff members and the individual faculty members who act as mentors and advisers. Students are encouraged to work with the director of graduate studies regarding course selections and individual program requirements to ensure that all program milestones are reached as expected by the program faculty and CLAS. The graduate studies director or coordinator is also responsible for the regular assessment of students in the program and should be the one to address questions regarding a student’s progress toward the degree.
