For all Hawaiian schools, courses with courses numbers 1, 105, 111, 114, 141, 151, or 152 are not considered equivalent to any OSU general chemistry courses and cannot be used to fulfill the general chemistry requirement of any major or used for the chemistry minor. Students who plan to transfer to OSU and need general chemistry (CH 121-123 or CH 231/261-233/263, previously 221-223) for their major at OSU (including science and pre-health majors and chemistry minors) must take both CHEM 161 and 162 (CHEM 124-125 with labs and recitations at Hilo) and all laboratory courses associated with these courses (e.g., 161L).

All courses from Hawaiian schools are semester courses and the credits shown below are after conversion of semester to quarter credits.

These courses do not convert to specific OSU courses.

Students who plan to transfer to OSU and need general chemistry (CH 121 - 123 or CH 231/261-233/263, previously CH 221-223) for their major at OSU, including science and pre-health majors, must take both CHEM 161 (& 161L) and 162B (& 162L). With only CHEM 161, students must take CH 122 and 123 or CH 232/262-233/263 (previously CH222 & 223) to complete one year of general chemistry. CHEM 161 plus 162 with the labs does satisfy the general chemistry requirement for the chemistry minor; but because the sequence is only 12 credits, students may need more UD courses to reach the required 27 credits.
