Students admitted initially to the M.S. program may appeal to be promoted to the Ph.D. Program after at least four graduate Chemistry courses not graded S/U have been completed in the M.S. Program. The petition for promotion will be considered by the Admissions Committee in the same way that the initial application to the degree program is handled for new students. A student desiring promotion should submit a completed Request for Change of Degree Objective form signed by the major professor (but not by the Graduate Coordinator) to the Graduate Program Administrator. The Graduate Program Administrator will assemble an up-to-date file with transcripts and letter of recommendation from his/her major advisor. The Admissions Committee will review the file and make a recommendation to the Graduate School.
