OVERRIDES FOR CS COURSES -- SUMMER 2015, FALL 2015, and SPRING 2016

This page and the associated form (URL below) may be revised from time to time. Changes will be noted at the bottom of this page.

If you cannot register for a CS course because Banner says that you do not have some REQUISITE (prerequisite, corequisite), do not use the form provided here. Please ask your academic advisor, whom we hereby authorize to give the override of the requisite if appropriate. Your advisor may refer you to the instructor if he or she does not have a sufficient basis for granting the override.

If the INSTRUCTOR'S PERMISSION is required for a course, take a properly completed Form 23 (your academic advisor should have some) to the instructor. The instructor can give permission by entering the override code "INST-PERMIT" and signing the form, which you should then take to the registrar's office in HOVDE unless instructed otherwise by your advisor. Do not use the form provided here.

REQUESTS FOR OVERRIDES are generally handled in the weeks after open registration begins so that students (typically CS students) that have first priority have the first opportunity to register.

Reports of "inability to register for the course because of a lack of space" are used to measure unmet demand for a course (not for a specific section or part of a course), which we remedy, if we can, by providing more space and informing those who have asked for it. We give closed section overrides only in special cases and never beyond the capacity of a room.

If you submit more than one form for the same course*, only the last form will be used. To REVISE A SUBMITTED FORM, submit a new one. Keep this in mind if you change your e-mail address.

* The courses 19000, 29000, 39000, 49000, 59000, 59100, and 69000 are each one course with different sections that (with rare exceptions) we treat as different courses and thus need their three-character section IDs to identify them. If the course has more than one part, use the section ID of the lecture.

To withdraw a request, submit a new form, checking "Withdraw my earlier request(s) for this course".

Selecting the ">>" in the lower right corner of the last page of the form submits the form.

By submitting the form, you are authorizing the Department of Computer Science to access whatever University records may be needed to verify your statements or may be helpful in allotting space. If you do not wish to do that, do not submit the form.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE FORM CAREFULLY lest an error cause your request to be ignored.

There is NO NEED TO INQUIRE once you've completed the request form. 

Students will be informed via email if/when space can made available. 

Processing time varies by course.
