Special Approval Class Full Instructions
If Class is Full
When a class requiring special approval is full, you can still complete the special approval form and be placed on the waiting list. The department will notify you if your name comes up for a spot in the class and then you can register. In some cases where there are special circumstances the department may not follow the list order. This happens, for instance, if a student needs a class in order to graduate that semester.
If a class is full and there are exceptional reasons why you need this class this semester, you can email the instructor and ask if you can get an override into the class. We try hard to keep classes small enough for good instruction, so only exceptional reasons will be considered by instructors. If the instructor allows the override, ask them to send an email to the office indicating that. The office will check for prerequisite requirements and then let you know you can register.
