Purdue University - Department of Computer Science - CS Course Requests (formerly Registration)

Requesting Access to CS Courses - Spring 2018

NON-CS students  see non-CS info page

NON-DEGREE students see non-degree info page

CS MINORS see CS minor info page

NEW CS  MAJORS (recently approved CODOs) will be contacted by your new advisor, who will assist you.



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

Lack of Space:

If you are a current CS student and you cannot register for a class due to lack of space, please complete this override/space request form. Requests will be reviewed and students notified via email whether space is available by December 13, 2017. Requests should be submitted before that time.

Instructor's Permission

If the INSTRUCTOR'S PERMISSION is required for a course, obtain a Form 23 from your advisor, fill in the needed information, and bring to the instructor. The instructor may give permission by entering the override code "INST-PERMIT" and signing the form if appropriate.  You should then take the fully completed form to the registrar's office in HOVDE unless instructed otherwise by your advisor.  Note that a properly signed form will NOT be honored if the course is full.

Due to increasing enrollment in both the CS undergraduate and graduate programs, availability of courses designed for CS majors is limited.
