Override Request Form

Departments of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics

Please read all of the instructions before filling out the form. All of the requested information is needed in order to be able to make a quick and informed decision regarding your circumstances.

While the Departments of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics have implemented wait lists for some of their courses, they are offered on a first come, first served basis (there is no re-ordering or prioritizing of the wait lists).

If you feel you have exceptional need for a course then you may use this form to request an override into the course. If granted this would allow you immediate registration access. We suggest you also place yourself on the wait list if one is provided or take an open section if one is available.


Override Status

If Approved: An announcement will appear under your Student Tab → Registration → Registration Status in portal.truman.edu.

If Denied: You will be notified by an email from the department office administrative assistant.

Most override requests are granted or denied within 2 business days.

If the override is approved, you will have 3 business days to add the course. After three days, the override may be revoked. If you apply for or use an override after the Free Add/Drop Period, a $50 fee will be assessed to your account.
