If you are unable to add a course through your Student Center, it may be because you need special permission from our office. Special permission is often required to enroll in a course overload, to take a course at one of the Affiliated University Colleges, or to waive a course prerequisite.
Note: Special permission requests to override course restrictions will be considered in September.
How to get special permissions reviewed and approved:
Step 1: Submit your request for Special Permission
Each type of special permission has its' own set of instructions and limitations.
Please refer to the one that relates to your situation:
- Course Overload
- Courses at Affiliate Universities
- Full Course
- Missing Prerequisite
- Timetable Conflict
Step 2: Wait for your approval from Academic Advising or your Department
Step 3: Depending on your request you may need to contact Western Live Chat to get enrolled in your approved course(s). In some situations you will be allowed to enroll yourself once the approval is granted. Try to enroll yourself, if you have issues contact Live Chat.
