Seats may seem to fill up fast at the start of Registration - March 21st, but for those looking for FALL 2016 - please be patient, as many factors play into seat capacity changes.  You are most likely to see seats become available when the summer sessions end and grades post to determine who does not meet the next level prerequisite grade requirements. Other factors also come into play that allow seats to open.  Do not get discouraged and please be patient. 

Chemistry courses are in HIGH demand for many majors and should be registered for as HIGH priority above other courses.

If you are taking the prerequisite courses off campus during the summer, and want to register for next level in advance - the permission form from the Registrar's website ( must be filled out and signed by the Chemsitry Department Chair before approval is given to allow registration for courses. (i.e. - taking CHEM 1150/1151 at a community college "back home" and wanting to register for CHEM 1160/1161 for the FALL)
