The CSC manages the accreditation of undergraduate chemistry programs across Canada and around the world. Our program helps ensure that graduates are earning recognized degrees that are a firm foundation on which to build a career.

CSC Accredited Programs

Here’s how we ensure standards are maintained:

1st Cycle: To accredit the program for the first five years, a team of chemists visits the site, and and the CSC’s accreditation board performs a review.

2nd Cycle: To earn accreditation for the second five years, the program must pass a review by the CSC accreditation board.

Please note:

  • International accreditations require a site visit for the second cycle as well as the first.
  • Program cycles may be adjusted to align with provincially mandated program reviews.
