Spring 2017 Registration Overrides

The Override Request Form for Spring 2017 is now available at  If you need an override for a course, you must complete this form.  If you know you will need an override, please submit your requests early to ensure your override is entered before your registration day!

  • Overrides are needed if
    • You have a substitution or waiver for a course that is a prerequisite for a course you wish to register for in Spring.  You can view your substitutions/waivers in your Degree Evaluation;
    • You wish to register for a Bridge Course *Registration Deadline: 13 December 2016*
    • You need to make a third attempt at a course.  You MUST meet with Dr. Islam, the Associate Chair, in order to obtain this override. Email him at to request a meeting. Please DO NOT submit an override request via the system for third attempts.
  • Overrides are NOT needed if
    • You are currently registered for a course that is a prerequisite for a course you wish to take in Spring. The system assumes you will pass your current course, and will allow you to register for the next course.  If you do not pass the current course, you must drop the subsequent course before the Spring term begins.  If you do not, you will be administratively removed prior to the start of the semester, and you will be responsible for any financial repercussions of the schedule adjustment.


  • We DO NOT waive prerequisites for any reason.  Do NOT submit override requests for courses if you are not eligible for them.
  • Please allow at least 3 business days for the processing of overrides.  If you submit duplicate requests, your request will be moved to the bottom of the queue.
  • The University will be closed 22 Dec 2016-04 January 2017 for Winter Break and no overrides will be processed during this time.
