How to Get an Override

In order to obtain an override into a course, you will need to contact the instructor for permission. ONLY the instructor can allow you into a course.

Please read and follow the steps below carefully:

  1. Contact the instructor who teaches the course that you would like to enroll in. The name of the Instructor is located on the MSU Schedule of Courses. If no instructor is listed, please call the Plant Biology Office at (517) 355-4683 to request the instructor's name.
  2. Email the Instructor asking for an override. It will be necessary to provide them with an explanation as to why you require this course (only time offered, senior, class is full, etc.) 
  3. Once you have received permission from the instructor forward your correspondence (approval) to Shawna Prater at praters@msu.edu.
  4. Upon receiving your email, the override will be granted and you will be enrolled into the course. You will receive an email informing you that the process has been completed.
