Since 1973, the O'Hara Chemical Sciences Institute has provided new students at the
University of Dallas the opportunity to complete two semesters of General Chemistry
during the summer. This residential program spans eight weeks in June-August. Accepted
students receive a scholarship that covers room, board and tuition. The value of this
scholarship is approximately $5,600. Students supply only their text books; the rest
of the program is free.
Admission to the program is competitive. The SAT average is typically over 1300. A
maximum of twenty scholarships are awarded each year and require SAT or ACT scores
and a letter of recommendation from a science teacher. Applications for 2018 are due
by April 1, 2018. Only students who have been accepted to the University of Dallas
are considered for scholarships.
The schedule is quite demanding: class is in the morning, Monday through Friday, and
laboratory is three to four afternoons each week. Exams are given each Monday. On
the weekends, students enjoy group activities, such as a trip to Six Flags amusement
park, attending a Texas Rangers game, or touring the Coca-Cola syrup plant. Upon completion
of the program, students receive credit for CHE 1303, 1103, 1304 and 1104. This is
the first year of college chemistry.
This program is open to all students who will be enrolling at the University of Dallas
in the fall. You do not have to be a Chemistry or Biochemistry major, though this
program is highly recommended for Chemistry and Biochemistry majors. The advantage
of O'Hara for these majors may be seen by comparing the four-year schedules of Chemistry and Biochemistry majors with and without O'Hara. By completing general chemistry in the summer you
can finish Organic Chemistry before going to Rome in your sophomore year. You will
then be eligible for summer research after your second year and will be able to take
electives during your senior year. Click here for more reasons to participate in the O'Hara Program.

Its connection to UD helps the alumnus-owned Lamberti's fulfill its three pillars: local, tradition and famiglia. Lamberti's was the vendor for this year's Groundhog "Party in the Park" celebration; additionally, Lamberti's is looking into carrying Due Santi Rosso wine from UD's own vineyard on the Eugene Constantin Campus.
The University of Dallas community gathered on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, for the formal blessing and opening of Cardinal Farrell Hall, named after our former bishop of Dallas, previous chancellor and longtime friend of the university, Kevin Cardinal Farrell. The opening of the new student-focused building marks the completion of one of several capital projects, a part of a broader institutional effort to transform the university's Irving campus.
