This set of requirements was approved in March 2011.  If you are on an earlier Bulletin year your STAR report will list a slightly different set of courses.  You and your academic adviser may be able to submit paperwork to have your program modified to match this list.

* Chem 311 will begin in Fall 2014, replacing Chem 221.
