Overrides

If you are not able to enroll or place yourself on a waitlist for a class, please see below for the possible reasons and how to proceed:

  • Missing pre-requisites: You have not completed the pre-requisites or transcripts from a previous or transient institution have not been processed by UCF.
    1. If you have the instructor’s consent to take the course without the pre-requisite, please email the “information needed for an override” below to Jenna.Schmidt@ucf.edu along with email proof from the professor.
    2. If you have proof that you have completed, are currently completing, or planning to complete the pre-requisite at a different institution, please use the online override system here: https://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ebd7M1iWAOittop. NOTE that for Q15 you will need to upload proof of pre-requisites. You can provide a screenshot, word doc, or pdf of unofficial transcripts, degree audit, etc.
    3. You believe you have the pre-requisites and they’re appearing on your myUCF system, but you are enrolled in a major that does not require the class you are attempting to register for or it is a restricted elective for your major.
      1. If the class is not required for your major – send the “information needed for an override” below to Jenna.Schmidt@ucf.edu on the Friday before the class begins. These classes are reserved for students who require it for their major. This is regardless of whether the course is a pre-requisite for any graduate or professional school plans.
      2. If the class is a restricted elective for your major, please email the “information needed for an override” below to Jenna.Schmidt@ucf.edu for the Summer 2020 semester now. For the Fall 2020 semester, send this information by July 23.
  • Time conflict: The class you are trying to enroll in is overlapping with another course. You’ll need to obtain consent from both instructors of the classes that overlap, and email them to Jenna.Schmidt@ucf.edu with the “information needed for an override” below.
  • Term unit load: You’d like to register for more than 14 credits during the Summer or more than 17 credits for the Fall or Spring. You’ll need to email Jenna.Schmidt@ucf.edu with the “information needed for an override” below only if you are a Biology major and your UCF and Major GPAs are at least 3.0.
