Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Ohio University is changing to a semester academic calendar beginning with the Fall Semester of 2012 for the class of 2016.
Ohio University students who began their studies in Fall 2009, Fall 2010, or Fall 2011 and thus would be expected to be members of the classes of 2013, 2014, or 2015, will have the academic calendar change occur during their time as an Ohio University student.
The University is committed to the concept that no student will face a delay in their expected graduation date as a result of the calendar change, and courses of study have been laid out for students in all majors that accommodate the calendar change without impacting time-to-completion. So long as a student maintains steady progress toward the degree, and doesn't need to repeat courses, take remedial courses, or decide to minor or double major, etc. and would have graduated in four years under the quarter system, that student will be able to graduate in four years under the semester system.
Every chemical engineering student impacted by the calendar change will, through the normal process of meeting regularly with their adviser, formulate a plan particular to that student outlining the course schedule that student will need to follow as the transition occurs to maintain their expected graduation date.
Below are links to the new chemical engineering curriculum on the semester system as well as expected schedules for students in each of the affected classes. As always, if any student has a question about any of this, PLEASE contact your adviser, the department's Assistant Chair for Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Darin Ridgway, or the department Chair, Dr. Valerie Young.
