You will not receive a confirmation from the department has been successfully processed. Most requests are processed within two (2) business days. If on the third day you still cannot register, please contact the department by emailing the Chemistry Office
For those students from an institution other than UH, in order to expedite your override request after filling out the form below, please contact the department by emailing the Chemistry Office with a copy of your transcript to verify any required course prerequisites.
SUMMER SESSION ONLY: I want to take Chem 161 and 162 or Chem 272 and 273 in the summer at UHM. I have the prerequisite for the first course and have enrolled in summer session I, but the system will not let me register for the summer session II course, i.e. Chem 162 or 273. Can I get an override from the department to register for this course in the second session, if I am registered for the prerequisite course in session I?
A. Yes, summer session registration is different than Fall or Spring. Because both sessions occur in the same semester, students will always need an override to register for the second course even after completing the first course. This applies to labs as well. Complete the form below and request a “SUMMER ONLY: Concurrent Registration” override. Note: students who do not pass the first lecture or lab (Chem 161/161L or 272/272L), will need to drop their second session classes (Chem 162/162L or 273/273L).
Q. FALL ONLY: I will be taking a Chem class in the summer on the mainland (e.g. Chem 162), but want to register for the next class in the sequence in the Fall (e.g. Chem 272). The system will not let me do this though. Can I get a prerequisite override from the department to register for the Fall class (Chem 272)?
A. Yes, since the registration system would allow students registered at UHM in the summer to do this automatically, student taking prerequisite classes on the mainland can request an override to register for fall. Please note, you will have to provide evidence before the start of the fall semester that you have completed this prerequisite with a C minimum. If not you will need to drop that course in the fall. Complete form below requesting the “FALL ONLY I am currently enrolled in a prerequisite course at another institution …” override. In the space below provide the school, course number, and a URL link to the course description. We will take a look at the information provided, and let you know if the course is an acceptable transfer.
