3/2 Program in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemistry at Southern University and the Gordon A. and Mary Cain Department of Chemical Engineering at LSU offer a dual degree in chemistry and chemical engineering. The student, after successful completion of the required courses in both curricula, will be awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Southern University and a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering degree from LSU. The first three years of course work are taken principally at Southern University and the last two years principally at LSU.

Chemical Engineering


128 Total Sem. Hrs.


Chemistry, Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics Proficiency • A grade of “C” or better in each of the basic sciences preparatory courses–BIOL 1201 ; CHEM 1201  and CHEM 1202 ; PHYS 2101  and PHYS 2102 ; MATH 1550 , MATH 1552 , and MATH 2090 –is required before students may register for any chemical engineering course other than CHE 2160  and CHE 2171 .

Residence Requirement • Students must complete at least 18 residence hours of required chemical engineering courses, including CHE 4172 , and exclusive of approved chemical engineering electives.

Academic Warning • Any chemical engineering student whose cumulative grade point average on all chemical engineering courses is less than a 2.00 shall be placed on academic warning status. Such students will receive a letter from the department chair informing them of their GPA, and reminding them that a 2.00 or better GPA in all chemical engineering courses is required for the BSChE degree.

Academic Probation • Any chemical engineering student whose cumulative GPA on all chemical engineering courses attempted is seven or more quality points below a 2.00 shall be placed on departmental scholastic probation. Students will remain on departmental scholastic probation until they have achieved a GPA of 2.00 or better on all chemical engineering courses attempted. Such students will receive a letter from the department chair informing them of their probationary status, reminding them that a 2.00 GPA in all chemical engineering courses is required for the BSChE degree, and cautioning them that a further loss of quality points may result in their being dropped from the department.

Academic Drop • Any chemical engi-neering student whose cumulative GPA on all chemical engineering courses attempted is 10 or more quality points below a 2.00 shall be dropped from the department. Students dropped for the first time shall be ineligible to enroll in chemical engineering courses for one full semester (fall or spring) following their drop. Students dropped for a second time shall be ineligible to enroll in chemical engineering courses for one calendar year. In either instance, readmission to the department may be delayed or denied at the discretion of the department chair.
