OVERRIDES into POLITICAL SCIENCE COURSES

Political Science faculty and instructors can offer permission to override a student into their class.

How does the work get done? Faculty and instructors notify the department of their decision via the Course Override Permission form located in the Faculty Resources part of the department website.

Details:

  • If an instructor offers you a seat in their class, that instructor must also inform the department of their decision using the Course Override Permission form.
  • If you have been offered a seat in a class by the instructor, you have a seat in the class. Please do not worry if a class is filling. An instructor is able to override the course cap. (Exception: If the entire class is canceled, the change applies to all students, enrolled or overridden.)

Why do I need to wait to get into a class when I have been given permission by the instructor?

  • You cannot be placed in a class until your enrollment is active. If the date and time of your enrollment appointment has not arrived, we also need to wait to override you.
  • You cannot be placed in a class until the instructor completes the Course Override Permission form.

If these steps have been taken and you are still having trouble getting overridden into a class, please contact the Director of Advising for Political Science and Legal Studies, Adrian Grace.
