If these courses are full, submit a course access request here

For prerequisites/corequisites errors only:

If you 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.


CS 18000 – off-peak only

Non-major sections are open to all students during spring and summer sessions. The course is now full. You may submit an override request if you still wish to take the class. If additional non-major spaces become available you will be notified.

CS Undergraduate Core Courses (18200, 24000, 25000, 25100, and 25200) – off-peak only

Access for non-CS majors and non-CS minors is very limited. During off-peak semesters, restrictions will be lifted on the Friday prior to the start of classes; if space is available, non-CS majors and non-CS minors may register for any spaces available.  Please do not submit an override request, it will not be reviewed.

  • CS 18200, 24000 and 25200 are off-peak in Fall semester
  • CS 25000 and 25100 are off-peak in Spring semester
  • Summer will function as an off-peak semester for all core courses

CS Undergraduate Courses (300 and 400 level)

Students who are neither CS majors nor CS minors who meet prerequisites may submit an override request for 300 and 400 level courses here.  Requests will be reviewed and students notified via email whether space is available December 14-22, 2017.  Restrictions will be lifted on the Friday prior to the start of classes as possible. Courses with unmet demand from CS majors will have restrictions lifted on January 12, 2018.

CS Graduate Courses

Students who are neither CS majors nor CS minors who meet prerequisites may submit a request for access to CS graduate courses here.  Requests will be reviewed and students notified via email whether space is available December 14-22, 2017.  Courses for which CS student demand has been met will have restrictions lifted on the Friday prior to the start of classes. 

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


Prerequisites/Corequisites

If you 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.

Instructor's Permission

If the INSTRUCTOR'S PERMISSION is the only restriction preventing you from registering for a course, obtain a Form 23 from the advising office, 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 (Hovde Hall room 45) unless instructed otherwise by your advisor.  Note that a properly signed form will NOT be honored if the course is full.

Program Error

If you cannot register for a CS course because Banner gives you a PROGRAM ERROR, refer to the information above to determine when/whether your access may be possible. You may also refer to the general CS course access policy.

Lack of space

Non-CS graduate students and non-degree students may request space in CS courses through this form.  These requests will be used to measure unmet demand.  Requests will be reviewed and students notified via email whether space is available December 14-22, 2017.  Requests for peak semester access will not be considered.
