Admission Requirements, Retention & Termination Standards

  1. The student must have completed at least 30 hours of his or her chemistry major, in addition to CHM 505 (3) and CHM 507 (1), before approval for student teaching can be given. The student must have a minimum grade point average of 2.7 in those 33 hours of chemistry courses. Transfer chemistry credit will be accepted from regionally accredited institutions, but at least 6 of the hours must be CMU classes with a minimum grade point average of 2.7. At least 12 of the required chemistry credit hours must have been received within 10 years of application for student teaching.
  2. In order for a student to be approved for student teaching in chemistry, two CMU chemistry faculty must, at the student’s request, provide completed department student evaluation forms.
  3. Each student must demonstrate competence in chemistry by passing an American Chemical Society standardized chemistry examination at a specific level in order to be approved for student teaching.
