Enrollment Issues (Pre-Requisites, Independent Study, Late Enrollment)
You may run into challenges during the enrollment process (e.g. pre-requisites). Below are four sets of instructions for requesting assistance from our office, including:
Please review instructions carefully, as requests with missing information may delay your enrollment.
If you are experiencing enrollment issues that do not require an approved waiver of a pre-requisite, independent study or late enrollment approval (see below for those instructions), please email firstname.lastname@example.org, using the following format:
- Please submit all the information in one email. Requests with all the required information will be expedited during the enrollment period. Any request with missing information will delay your enrollment.
The email subject should include the Course number, "Enrollment Issue” and Enrollment Appointment/Time (e.g. HD 302 Enrollment Issue April 14, 8am). In the body of the email please include the following;Your Name Student ID Appointment Date and Time Class # (5 digit) Course Title (e.g. HD 302) Description of issue
**To allow enrollment in two classes that have a time conflict, approval from both instructors is required.
*Please note that approval to override prerequisites does not indicate permission to occupy a seat in the course (permission numbers are required beginning the second week of the semester and for courses that require instructor consent). Likewise, a permission number does not indicate prerequisites have been met. Only the faculty of record or designee may waive prerequisites.
