Students transferring from other institutions must follow certain steps to be eligible to register for subsequent chemistry courses at UGA. These steps go hand-in-hand with the steps for transferring credits for courses taken at the prior institution.
PREREQUISITE COMPLETION. Courses at other institutions that qualify as prerequisites for UGA Chemistry courses must be completed prior to registration. You cannot register for a UGA courses if a prerequisite course at another institution is still in progress. The Department does not offer waivers of this requirement.
ACS TEST COMPLETION. If you are required to pass an ACS examination to obtain credit for a course, you must complete and pass the exam prior to registration. The Department does not offer waivers of this requirement.
Requests for information or support are handled through email exchange with the General Chemistry Administrator. Send all email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Do NOT send requests to any other email address: doing so will delay your support by 2 to 5 business days.
Allow one full business day for a reply. If, for example, you send a request at 6 PM on a Wednesday, it will be received the following morning, and a reply can be generally expected one business day later, which would be Friday morning. Do not send additional emails on the same topic: this will delay your support by 1 to 3 business days.
You must include your full name, MyID, and 810 number on all email. If any of this information is missing, the email will be returned without action, resulting in a delay.
All credit transfer and overrides require that you attach a copy of your transcript. If you do not have an official transcript yet, you may send a screen shot of the unofficial grade report or online transcript. The screen shot must show the following information:
- Name of the institution.
- Name of the student
- Year and semester
- The course number (e.g. “CHEM 3456”) and title (e.g. “Inorganic Chemistry”).
If the transcript is not attached, the email will be returned without action, resulting in a delay.
