Course & Request Information

Is this a prerequisite override request?

PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT bypass prerequisites or allow you to take them at the same time as any course for which they are prereqs (no co-requisites). A prereq override is considered for only two reasons: 1. You are a transfer student who successfully completed the prerequisite at another institution, but the computer is not reading it correctly; or 2) You are a declared non-COM major (like Sports Management) who is required to complete specific COM courses but is not required to complete all the prerequisites.

Is this a closed override request?

PLEASE NOTE: If a course is currently full, we are at maximum capacity. Please continue checking the registration system to see if a seat opens.
