Advising for Chemistry Undergrads
Please contact Dr. Peter Bridson if you have questions about undergraduate programs in chemistry. Chemistry majors may schedule an appointment using Navigate. Other students should send an email to request a meeting.
Significant changes to chemistry degree requirements were made in 2016. If you started higher education in 2015 or earlier, and plan to graduate before August 2022, you may still use the 2015 catalog. If this applies to you, discuss the details with Dr. Bridson at your next advising appointment.
Important Information for Students Attempting to Register for CHEM 1110
If you receive the following error message when registering for CHEM 1110: "Prerequisite and test score error," it is most likely that you have not met the MATH prerequisite for CHEM 1110. This may happen if you do not have a valid ACT MATH sub-score > 23, or have not yet completed MATH 1710 with a grade of C- or better. If you have already completed a higher level MATH course you can request a permit by following this link: Permit Request.
Do not use this request form for permits for Tennessee eCampus classes (R50 sections) or for courses other than CHEM. Information for making these requests is available from the registrar's website.
