- Tentative approval by the Associate Chairman must be sought by the student prior to the onset of the internship.
- A chemistry/biochemistry faculty member who is willing to serve
as the titular mentor of the student for the internship experience must
be secured by the student prior to the onset of the internship. The
faculty member will be responsible for determining the credit hours to
be awarded and the grade assigned, both in consultation with the
student's on-site mentor.
- Normally, registration in CHEM-X66 will be utilized, up to a
maximum of 6 credits. As is currently the case, grading will be
pass/fail only. For projects of particularly high academic merit the
faculty mentor, at his/her discretion, may approve registration in
CHEM-468, up to a maximum of 6 credits.
- In order to receive a passing grade, the student must submit a
satisfactory comprehensive formal written report to the faculty member.
The report must also be approved by the on-site mentor. If the work
carried out is proprietary in nature, the report should outline the
synthetic and/or physical/analytical techniques employed. If
registration in CHEM-468 has been approved by the faculty mentor, he/she
may award a letter grade for the work after the satisfactory written
report has been submitted.
