Course Overrides

Request for Overrides, Summer 2022

If you wish to be added to a STAT, OPER, or SSOR course for the summer 2022 semester, please read and follow the procedures below. If you are requesting an override for a MATH course, please visit the math department website.

Requests for overrides for STAT, OPER and SSOR courses will be reviewed and processed as they are received. Students receiving overrides will be granted electronic overrides, implying you will be able to register for the class as usual through eServices. It is your responsibility to make sure you have no holds or scheduling conflicts that would prevent you from registering. Students granted overrides at least a week before the class is scheduled to begin will have seven days to use the override or it will be deleted. Students granted overrides within 7 days of the start of the class must use the override before the add/drop period ends, which for summer courses is the day after the first class meeting. Students hoping to be added to classes may attend during the add/drop period only, but doing so does not guarantee that you will receive an override. When the add/drop period ends, if you are not registered in the class, you must stop attending.

To obtain an override for a STAT, OPER, or SSOR course, please completely fill out the override request form below. You must include your full V-number and your complete VCU email address. If you are requesting an override because there are currently no open seats in a section, those will be reviewed to see if additional students can be added. If you are requesting an override because you received a “Prerequisite Not Met” error when trying to register for a class in eServices, use the Additional Comments box to explain in detail how you have alternatively satisfied the prerequisite. If you are requesting an override for any other reason, please elaborate completely in the Additional Comments box. For classes with multiple sections you may list all of the sections that you can take on the form, in your priority order. If you need overrides for more than one course, please complete the form multiple times, once for each course.
