Students transferring CHE 223 or its equivalent from a university without an ABET accredited chemical engineering program must pass a test on the subject matter of this course before enrolling in upper-division CHE courses.

In addition, a passing grade is required in each of the following courses before enrolling in upper-division CHE courses:

CHE 123Computations in Chemical Engineering2
Computer Science Elective
ENGL 102College Writing and Rhetoric3

A student majoring in chemical engineering may not register for upper-division CHE courses after accumulating more than four grades of D or F in UI mathematics, science, or engineering courses. Included in this number are multiple repeats in a single class or single repeats in multiple classes. A warning will be issued in writing to students who have accumulated two grades of D or F used to satisfy curricular requirements.

A GPA in CHE designated courses of at least 2.0 is required to graduate
