It is recommended that students complete general chemistry (two semesters, plus lab) and calculus I-II (two semesters) in the freshman year; organic chemistry (two semesters, plus lab), analytical chemistry (at least one semester of lecture and one semester of lab), calculus III (one semester), and calculus-based physics (two semesters, one semester lab) in the sophomore year to facilitate transfer into the department. If there is a choice, courses specifically designated for science and/or engineering students should be selected.
SUNY Seamless Transfer is a SUNY-wide program intended to make transferring to UB and other SUNY Schools simple and efficient for SUNY students. SUNY has defined courses that SUNY students can take before transferring which will apply to the major at UB and ensure timely graduation. Information about the Transfer Path for this major can be found on the SUNY website.
