Courses to total 128 credits for this degree, not counting Engl 101Math 143, and other courses that might be required to remove deficiencies.

Students majoring in chemical engineering must earn a grade of C or better in each of the following courses before registration is permitted in upper-division chemical engineering courses: Chem 111 and Chem 112ChE 223Engr 210Engr 320, and Engr 335; and Math 275 and Math 310.

Students transferring ChE 223 or its equivalent from a university without an ABET accredited chemical engineering program must pass a test on the subject matter of this course before acceptance of the course for certification.

A passing grade is required in each of the following courses before registration is permitted in upper-division chemical engineering courses: ChE 123, computer science elective, Math 170 and Math 175, and Phys 211 and Phys 212.

Any student majoring in chemical engineering may accumulate no more than four grades of D or F in UI mathematics, science, or engineering courses that are used to satisfy junior certification requirements. Included in this number are multiple repeats in a single class or single repeats in multiple classes. A warning will be issued in writing to students who have accumulated two grades of D or F in UI mathematics, science, or engineering courses used to satisfy curricular requirements.

An average GPA of at least 2.0 is required for all chemical engineering courses used to satisfy the curricular requirements.
