Students interested in studying Chemistry can work with the Advising and Transfer Center staff for course selection or with the Math/Science department coordinator. Kirkwood has articulation agreements with all three state universities and many other four-year institutions in the state. It is recommended that you work closely with your advisor to ensure that you are aware of specific requirements for the institution you will attend, such as foreign language, laboratory science, diversity and grade point average.
Several Kirkwood awards are designated for students interested in a Science,Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) field: National Science Foundation S-STEM scholarship, Rockwell Collins STEM Scholarship, ACT Endowed Scholarship, Rohde Family Engineering Scholarship, Shive-Hattery Engineering Scholarship, Ervin Poduska Memorial Math and Science Scholarship, Gene Phillips Memorial Endowed Scholarship, Genecor Scholarship, Highway Equipment Company Endowed Scholarship, Giacoletto Foundation Scholarship, and Jim and Patricia Nemmers Endowed Scholarship. Apply for scholarships.
To transfer to a four-year college or university and major in Chemistry, complete the Kirkwood Liberal Arts A.S. degree. Fulfilling electives with credits in Chemistry classes provides opportunities to build your resume and prepare for transfer.
