Override Request Form

Please thoroughly read the information below before submitting an override request.

Submitting an override request will put on you the waiting list for:  


1) A class that is closed/full, or
2) Senior seminar (SOCY 390, 391 or 392), a required course for graduating Sociology majors, or
3) A class for which you do not have the necessary pre-/co-requisites.

Please complete one form for each class for which you are requesting an override.

A faculty member's permission to enroll in a closed/full class does not guarantee course enrollment.  We evaluate override requests from students based upon need (a student who must have the class to graduate in the next 1 or 2 semesters).

You may be notified as late as the drop/add deadline for the semester if a spot opens up for you in the class.  If a spot opens up in the class and you are the next person on the waiting list, we will attempt to add you to the class and then email you at your College email address to let you know it has been done.  We will not be able to add you if there is a time conflict with another class you are enrolled in, or if adding the class will put you over the maximum number of allowable credit hours (18).  Therefore, if there is a class you will need to be dropped from in the event that you get a spot in the course, please note that in your request so that the add and drop can be processed at the same time. 

If you decide at any point that you are no longer interested in the class, please let us know as soon as possible so you can be removed from the waiting list.  

Please direct any questions about the status of your request to socyanth@cofc.edu.
