Students on catalog years prior to the 2013/2014 catalog may have requirements to take CHE 441 and CHE 442 in their senior year.  These requirements are now satisfied by taking CHE 402 Physical Chemistry II with lab and CHE 422 Advanced Inorganic Chemistry with lab.  Students should see their advisor about petitioning to waive the requirements for CHE 441 and CHE 442 once they have completed CHE 402 and CHE 422.
