Students must have 12 or more graded hours completed at Texas A&M and no more than 75 total hours completed, including transfer, dual, and AP credit. Students who have three or more semesters of not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress will not be considered. SAP not only refers to grade point average but also to completion of required sciences/CBK courses. Drops will be considered for change of major eligibility.

Students must have completed the following 5 required Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) courses:

  • BIOL 111
  • BIOL 112
  • CHEM 119

These courses must have a grade of “C” or better from Texas A&M at another institution. AP or IB credits are also acceptable. At least one required Chemistry should be taken in residency at Texas A&M University (College Station, McAllen, or Galveston).

    • CHEM 119, 120, 227/237 and 228/238
