The criteria used for the selection of students who graduate with DEPARTMENTAL HONORS IN CHEMISTRY OR BIOCHEMISTRY are:
1. A grade point average of 3.5 or above in all graded courses.
2. A suitable accomplishment in undergraduate research. Specifically, the student will have pursued a research problem for one academic year or longer and have been recommended as worthy of honors (very good or better) by the faculty supervisor. Normally positive accomplishment and publishable results are expected, but not necessarily required.
3. Endorsement for the designation of a major with HONORS by a member of the University faculty.
4. Completion of all course requirements for the B.S. (or the B.A.) degree in chemistry or biochemistry. Waivers or substitutions may be allowed by approval of the faculty.
