New Freshman interested in majoring in chemistry (including Chemistry Pre-pharmacy, Chemistry Pre-med, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering (3+2) and Chemistry ACS) need only choose so on the Xavier University application. Current Xavier students should fill out a Change of Major form and obtain signatures from their current department chair as well as the Chemistry Department Chair. (This form can be obtained from the Chemistry Department secretary or the Registrar’s office.) Students with a grade point of average of 2.75 or greater will automatically be admitted to the chemistry department. The academic record of students with a grade point average less than 2.75 will be evaluated by the Chemistry Department Academic Advising Committee on an ongoing basis. Decisions are usually made within two days.
Prospective students interested in talking to the Department Chair or other department faculty about the resources and opportunities available in the Chemistry Department need only contact them for an appointment. Chemistry faculty are thrilled to talk to students interested in careers in chemistry.
