Accelerated B.S. in Chemistry

Some students may wish to obtain their B.S. degrees in less than the normal four years.

While this has disadvantages, such as requiring heavier work loads and limiting the time available for participating in undergraduate research and other activities, it may have financial advantages.

Completion of the B.S. requirements in three years can be achieved by taking courses in the summers, and additional electives in some semesters. Students with Advanced Placement standing in some courses can do this most easily.

It is also possible for those who do not wish to stay in Troy over the summer to take equivalent courses elsewhere and receive transfer credit.

Completion of the requirements in 3 1/2 years is another option. Advanced Placement and additional courses in some academic semesters may permit this to be done with minimal summer work.

Any student contemplating an accelerated program should discuss the matter with his or her adviser to avoid problems with selection of electives and prerequisites.
