As noted in the Chemistry Department Graduate Student Handbook, you must pass 5 exams before you fail 6 in order to remain in the chemistry graduate program. 

Special Notes:

Analytical Cumes: Each examination will contain at least one question concerning an Analytical Chemistry Feature Article (previously called A-Page article) from the previous 6 months. These A-page articles appear in the issue dated the 1st of the month; as the cumulative exams are generally the 1st Saturday of the month, the previous 6 months will not include the month of the exam (e.g., for the examination in October the previous 6 months will include articles from April through September). Articles considered fair game are those describing techniques and applications; you will not be examined on literature, conference or book reviews. If you have any questions concerning this please direct them to one of the analytical faculty (Joe Foley, PhD or Kevin G. Owens, PhD).
