To graduate with a B.S. degree from the College of Chemistry, students must satisfy the following requirements in addition to completing the lower and upper division course requirements for their major.
Please refer to the Berkeley Bulletin for Entry-level Writing and American History and Institutions requirements.
Berkeley Campus Requirement
After 90 units toward the bachelor's degree have been completed, at least 24 of the remaining units must be completed in residence in the College of Chemistry, in at least two semesters (the semester in which the 90 units are exceeded, plus at least one additional semester).
To count as a semester of residence for this requirement, a program must include at least 4 units of successfully completed courses. A summer session can be credited as a semester in residence if this minimum unit requirement is satisfied.
Juniors and seniors who participate in the UC Education Abroad Program (EAP) for a full year may meet a modified senior residence requirement. After 60 units toward the bachelor's degree have been completed, at least 24 (excluding EAP) of the remaining units must be completed in residence in the College of Chemistry, in at least two semesters. At least 12 of the 24 units must be completed after the student has already completed 90 units. Undergraduate Dean's approval for the modified senior residence requirement must be obtained before enrollment in the Education Abroad Program.
Chemical Engineering Majors
Chemical Engineering majors must complete a minimum of 45 engineering units, excluding CBE 185.
Minimum Total Units
A student must successfully complete at least 120 semester units in order to graduate.
A student must earn at least a C average (2.0 GPA) in all courses undertaken at UC, including those from UC Summer Sessions, UC Education Abroad Program, and UC Berkeley Washington Program, as well as XB courses from University Extension.
