As of Fall 2020, BI 22X replaces BI 21X .  A minimum of C- in BI 22X is an enforced prereq for BB 314.  BI 22X must be taken in order.  If you completed the previous BI 21X series before Fall 2020, this series still meets the requirements here.
First Year Orientation for chemistry majors strongly recommended (1 cr. P/N)
c MTH 112 is not a required course for the BS chemistry degree.
