I'm working on getting a biology degree (I will graduate Spring 2011) and its been 6 years since I took general chemistry. Some schools have a requirement that math/science courses must be taken within 5 years. Does this rule apply after graduation or does it not matter?

Since you have been in school all this time, I don't think they will require you to retake the courses.

I agree with this logic, but you are going to need to contact your school of choice OP. Only the school itself can answer this question.

But if you were getting a PhD or someother degree I doubt they would make you go back and retake them. I think as long as you are in school you should be fine.

I would contact the school but most schools will waive that since you have been using the knowledge you gained six years ago continuously.

COMPLETELY depends on the school in question!

For example, UoP wanted me to re-take Organic Chemistry, but Touro didn't care.

Please. Check. All. Schools.
