Geology Course Override Request
Environmental Science Course Override Request
Please allow 48 hours for processing your request. No Overrides will be given after the end of the first week of classes.
If you are trying to get into a joint lab and lecture, sign up for the lab first or put yourself on the lab waiting list. As places open, folks at the top of a waitlist will receive a message to their UTC email with a time limit to register or lose the spot. Therefore, if on a waitlist you will need to check your email daily if you are expecting a place to open! Also, you should be aware that sometimes spots open up as folks drop classes or are dropped for nonpayment.
We are limited as to how many people we can accommodate in classes and labs, therefore, we cannot guarantee that you can register for your desired courses. In general, the later you register relative to other students, the less chance that course openings will be available.
