Override requests for FALL 2016 courses are accepted during Advanced Registration March 21 - April 29. Override requests received after April 29 will not be processed.
Override requests are available online through MyIllinoisState.
1. Log in to MyIllinoisState
2. Click the Academics tab.
3. Under "Course Manager, select "Course Permit Request (Override)."
Approval of a psychology course override is not guaranteed; students should register for an alternate course in case their override request is not approved. Priority for approving an override is based on semester credit hours closest to graduation and other considerations. All override decisions for closed psychology courses are made after Advance Registration ends. Students will be notified by e-mail if their request has been approved. It is the student's responsibility to use an approved override to register for the psychology course as soon as possible. If an override is approved, students should drop their alternate course and register for the psychology course. An approved override may expire if the student fails to register for the psychology course in a timely manner.
1. Students will not be permitted to add a psychology course if they have missed more than one week of the class.
2. The Department of Psychology does not give overrides to add a course after the first week of the semester.
Override requests will not be accepted for the following courses:
If a psychology course is not closed but students cannot register for the course, and students have completed the prerequisite course and a grade has been recorded,contact Ms. Raz Steward by e-mailfor a prerequisite course override. Indicate in the e-mail subject line that the request is for a "prerequisite override." Do not submit the PSY override request form.
