The Chemistry Department has many courses where the laboratory class
(lab) is a required co-requisite along with the lecture class.
This means that you MUST take the lab along with the lecture in the same semester.
 These include the following course sequences:

* The only time the Chemistry Department allows students to take one course without the co-requisite is if they have attempted both courses before and failed one of them. *


“Prerequisite/Test Score Error” Message

You may be receiving this error because you must enter the CRNs for the lab and lecture courses at the exact same time.

To do so you must use the Add/Drop page in Banner. (see graphic below)

Often students will try to add the lecture and then add the lab only to have Pirate Port - Self Service Banner reject it as a “pre-requisite/test score error.” This is because the system reads the student as trying to register for only the one half of a pair of co-requisite courses. Banner does not have a “general data error” code, so it labels it a “pre-requisite error.”

1. Take the CRN numbers from the Self Service Banner/Pirate Port - semester catalog (the number in blue along the left hand side) and enter both CRNs in the boxes at the bottom of the page. (see graphic below)

2. Click “Submit Changes”.

* NOTE: MATH 1065 is a prerequisite or co-requisite of CHEM 1150 & 1151.
If you have not already completed MATH 1065, you will need to type in the CRN
for MATH 1065 either before or along with the CRNs for CHEM 1150 & 1151.

If you continue to have difficulties registering, please make sure:

  • The classes have available seats. This information will be listed in Pirate Port - Self Service Banner. (see screenshot below)

Chem Website Catalog CRN

  * The Chemistry Department CANNOT add students to labs that are already at maximum capacity.
If there are no spaces available in the lab, you will not be able to register for the corresponding lecture even if there are lecture spots available. *
 
 

If there are seats available in both lecture and lab and you are still encountering difficulties, check on the following:

  • There are no time conflicts in your schedule with the classes you are trying to register for.

  • That you have completed and passed the pre-requisite courses.

  • You are taking a course within your class range. For example: A freshman or sophomore should not be trying to register for a 4000 level seminars or research hours without special permission of the instructor.

  • If you have satisfied the above requirements, submitted a Registration Help Request, and have not received a response within 3 days, please email:

    CHEMISTRY@ecu.edu 
    with your Banner ID and the courses, section numbers,
    and CRNs
    of the classes you are trying to register for.
