Course Overrides

To ensure that course override information is fair and consistent for students, the College of Science and Mathematics has created universal policies across departments for the handling of three types of overrides.  The policies are listed below:

Prerequisite Override Policy

Due to the nature of the courses in CSM, we want to give students the highest possibility of success in our courses.  Because of this, courses in the College of Science and Mathematics have a "No prereq override" policy.  A student must meet the prerequisite for a course that they intend to take.

If you have taken the prerequisite at another institution, please email an advisor in College of Science and Mathematics Advising to request a prerequisite override.  We will need to see proof that you have or are currently completing the prerequisite elsewhere.

  • We have one form that is used for NON-STEM majors needing either SCI 1102 or ISCI courses. Please read the policies and fill out this form.
  • We have one form that can be used to direct an override request for a MATH course.  Please read the policies and fill out this form.
  • All other requests need to be sent to a CSM advisor and you must meet the prerequisite for the course you are requesting a prereq override for.

Registering or swapping courses that are corequisites.  Please click here for information on registering for corequisites.

Closed Class Override Policy

We recognize that certain courses are extremely popular in our college.  We are constantly trying to meet demand for our courses.  But, this sometimes still means that a class you wish to take fills up.  To best utilize the systems available at KSU (Waitlists), the College of Science and Mathematics has a "No closed class override" policy.  We want all students to have equal chance of getting into a class.

Please review waitlisting information here.

Repeat Override Policy

Kennesaw State University has established a policy that requires that a student reach out to the college or department that houses the course to request or gain access to a third attempt at a course.  The Repeat Policy for CSM exists to allow students that have not had the opportunity to attempt a course the ability to register for available seats.  Then, CSM's Repeat Policy will allow you access to registering for the course around Final Registration (before classes begin during Drop/Add).  Please fill out our form and make sure to read all policy information on the form.
