In certain circumstances, students may request permission from academic advisors, department chairs, associate deans, and/or instructors to register for a course without having the specified prerequisite completed or in progress. For students to request an override, they must submit a Prerequisite Override Request Form.
What is a Prerequisite?
Many courses require prerequisite courses or placement tests to be completed before you can register for the course. ASAP will screen for designated prerequisites on specific departmental courses. Prior to registering for a course, you can check the prerequisites for it in the current catalog by clicking on the course subject or number in the Schedule of Classes.
How to Submit a Prerequisite Override Request Form
