It depends! A full-time student is enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours at UH . Depending on your major and academic plan you may be taking more or less courses. It’s always best to check in with your advisor for further information.
If you are changing your major to something within the College of Natural Sciences, you can change your major by completing the Major Declaration Form. Once you have completed the form you can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind that you may need to meet with an advisor prior to completing the major change!
If you are changing your major to something outside of the College of Natural Sciences, then you will need to meet with an advisor from the college you wish to change to!
When you are waitlisted for a course you are essentially waiting to register for a class. This does not mean you will automatically get a seat! We recommend that you find an alternative to the course you are waitlisted just in case you don’t get into that class. If you need help discussing your options, you can always schedule an appointment with your advisor.
You can find your registration time directly on your STAR GPS Registration Tab at the bottom of the semester you will be registering for. Remember the time is always in Hawaii Standard Time (HST).
Check out our webpage dedicated to the Chemisrty and Math placement exams. You’ll find more information on how you can take the chemistry and/or math placement exams online.

Have you taken your chemistry or math placement exam? If not, you will need to do so before registering for the appropriate chemistry and math!
I took my placement exam already! Now what? For most students starting in a life science major (Biology, Marine Biology, Microbiology, Botany, and Molecular Cell Biology) you will be registering for a chemistry course (CHEM 131, CHEM 161, or CHEM 171) with an introductory biology course (BIOL 171 or BIOL 172) with the laboratory associated with that biology course (BIOL 171L or BIOL 172L). You will need to add all three courses together because they are prerequisites! Please make sure that if you are registering for BIOL 171 that you also select a BIOL 171L!
