At-a-glance

Admission to major: No additional requirements beyond the prerequisites for the required courses

Minimum hours required for major with pharmaceutical chemistry and analysis track: 84

Minimum hours required for major with medicinal and biological chemistry track: 82

Minimum hours required for major with pharmacy administration track: 91

Special tracks/programs: Pharmaceutical chemistry and analysis track, medicinal and biological chemistry track, pharmacy administration track, Honors

Advising: The Associate Chair for undergraduate programs in the Chemistry Department serves as the adviser for all Pharmaceutical Science majors. Phone 216-687-2451.

Additional information: Honors General Chemistry (CHM 262H  and CHM 267H ) is available to students selected by the director of General Chemistry. An honors track for Pharmaceutical Science majors admitted to the Honors Program is also available. Senior Research (CHM 489 ) provides an opportunity in the senior year for independent research with department faculty.

Prerequisite Statement: It is important that the student pay particular attention to the prerequisites and corequisites in this catalog. These courses serve as essential background, and without them, the student will experience significant difficulty. If a student has not satisfied the prerequisites and/or corequisites, the instructor may have the student de-registered.

General Information & Schedule for Chemistry Placement Examination

Students wanting to enroll in CHM 261 , General Chemistry I will need to fulfill ONE of the following prerequisites:

A minimum ACT score of 25 or SAT score of 550 on the Mathematics portion of those tests.

Successful completion of CHM 251 - College Chemistry I  (or equivalent) or CHM, Preparatory Chemistry with a grade of C or better in either course.

Take and successfully pass a standard American Chemical Society placement examination. Each student will have two chances to pass the exam, with a minimum two week interval required between attempts.

The General Chemistry I placement exam will be available, at no cost to the student, on a walk-in basis throughout the Spring and Summer semesters. Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Academic Services/Placement Testing, RTW 289, 216-687-2272

The placement exam is approximately one hour in length and is a pencil-and-paper exam (i.e., not computerized). To take the exam, each student will need a photo ID and two #2 lead pencils.

A student who does not pass the placement exam is strongly encouraged to enroll in CHM 161 - Preparatory Chemistry . After completing of CHM 161  with a grade of C or better, the student may enroll in CHM 261 .

For any further information, contact Dr. Jerry Mundell in the Department of Chemistry, 216-523-7310 or j.mundell@csuohio.edu.
