MVCC Chemistry and Biochemistry Transfer Guide

The following is presented as a transfer guide between Moraine Valley (MVCC) and Saint Xavier University for the Chemistry and Biochemistry program based on both catalogs of both schools. The student would complete an Associate of Science (A.S.) from MVCC and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Chemistry from SXU.

The Chemistry Department offers two major programs leading to a B.S. degree in (a) Chemistry with two tracks, Chemistry or Biochemistry and (b) Natural Science. Students who pursue a major or minor in chemistry can, in consultation with their academic advisors, successfully combine their chemistry interests with programs in art, biology, business, computer science, criminal justice or mathematics.

As a member of the IAI (Illinois Articulation Initiative), our participation allows students to follow a general education curriculum that will transfer smoothly to Saint Xavier University. All students who have completed the IAI general education core curriculum (IAI/GECC) are required to take two further mission-based courses at Saint Xavier University, these are: Philosophy 150: The Examined Life and one religious studies course.
