The approval of the instructor of the course you are attempting to enroll in is required when the course is full, you have not met the prerequisites, the course requires departmental consent or permission, or the course has a conflict with another course in which you are enrolled.

You can obtain the instructors approval by

  • meeting the instructor in person
  • acquiring an email from the Instructor that clearly grants you the override for the particular course

If you are missing prerequisites, your Course Override Form to the instructor should include why you want to take the course (e.g. to clear a fail or for an Option), any prerequisite, or equivalent courses you have taken, and why you feel that you will do well in the course. This information will allow the instructor to make a decision as to whether you are prepared for the course.
