Bachelor's programs in chemistry are built on an in-depth foundation of sequential coursework in science and math, while upper-division cousework provides the preparation necessary for graduate studies and/or work in industry. Multiple tracks are often available. For example, some institutions offer a specialty in biochemistry or certification for high school teaching. To transfer as a junior into a bachelor's chemistry program, students must complete a minimum of 60 semester credits, including all of the essential prerequisite courses below. Students should be aware that because of differences among schools in the number of credits for which various courses are offered and the possible need for prerequisite courses, it may be difficult to complete an Associate in Science degree without taking more credits than will be accepted in transfer. Students planning on a chemistry major should select courses in consultation with an advisor.

A grade of C or better may be required for chemistry, mathematics, and engineering science courses to transfer.
