Spring 2024 Override Form

If a course is full on SPIRE, you will need to wait for a seat to become available to enroll.

NOTE: Overrides submitted on or after the first day of classes will be considered LATE and may not be processed. Although we will try our best to accomodate all requests through the Add/Drop deadline, it is best that you make alternative plans for your schedule at this time and check your UMass email often for if we are able to accomodate your request.


Before submitting an override request, please refer to the NEW Registration Updates webpage for known issues: https://www.cics.umass.edu/registration-updates

If you do not see the course you are looking for, please check if the course number has recently changed: https://www.cics.umass.edu/content/new-course-numbers


Students who require special permission to enroll in University Scheduled CICS, COMPSCI or INFO courses should complete this form.
NOTE: Additional steps may be needed for UWW section enrollment.

Override requests will be reviewed beginning in early December.

This form is not to bypass prerequisites. Students without the listed prerequisites on SPIRE must provide alternative prerequisites for review.

This form is also not for FULL courses. Students who meet both eligibility and prerequisites as listed on SPIRE should add themself to the SPIRE waitlist as their override requests will be denied.
