What it is: An allowance for using one course to count towards another within the Neuroscience curriculum (core, research, capstone, and structured neuroscience electives). It is NOT a course completion.
How it works: Ask Dr. Tran ahead of time whether or not he would consider COURSE A to count towards COURSE B. If he approves, then you will be instructed to register for COURSE A or let him know whether it has already been taken. He will then submit the electronic paperwork to have the substitution request processed. If the Registrar's office approves of the request, then the substitution will take effect and will be updated in your Degree Works.
1) Substitute CHEM 2770 for BIOL 4880 (neuroscience elective): The latter will catch so that you may work towards completing the 9 or 21 SH of Neuroscience Electives. If you decide to register for a course that requires BIOL 4880 as a pre-requisite, then you still need to take BIOL 4880. Therefore, you really did not complete BIOL 4880.
2) Substitute NEUR 4200 (1 SH) for BIOL 4890 (3
SH). This will leave you with a 2 SH deficit that you still need to complete in
order to meet the 9 or 21 SH requirement of Neuroscience Electives.
See Question #13.
He will make the request to the Registrar on your behalf. For additional exceptions and conditions, see the Registrar's website.
See the forms page on the Registrar's website. Download and fill-in the "Permission to Take Courses at a US University or College Form". Turn it in to Dr. Tran for a signature then submit it to the Registrar's office before you enroll in the other school.
If you run into any of these error codes during registration, then email Dr. Tran and he'll do what he can (do see Question #8 if applicable). Again, like in previous questions, always provide the course prefix/number and CRN, along with the error code to help him process your request. Otherwise, there will be delays.
Some common restriction codes are:
There’s a few different restrictions for ENGL 2201:
This list is current as of 09.20.2017. It comes from THCAS Academic Advising & Resource Center. You need Excel or equivalent to view it properly.
You have two options:
1. Retain Dr. Tran as your Psychology advisor as well. If so, then simply contact him about your request and he'll update your records.
2. Not retain Dr. Tran as your Psychology advisor. Go to the Psychology website and locate the current Undergraduate Program Coordinator and he/she will guide you. You may also contact the Psychology Advising Center. Link for this information: http://www.ecu.edu/cs-cas/psyc/undergrad.cfm.
I frankly don't know and can't remember your registration date. But either type in "Registration Schedule" in the ECU Search Box or go here to the Registrar's Office for the latest schedule. It is based on the number of hours you have COMPLETED, not including how many hours you are working on this semester.
