  • If you have a justification for a possible exception, you may request an override of the restrictions by logging in to IC Workflow.

  • Click on Course Registration Override, complete the form and submit.
  • Can’t find the form? Type ‘override’ in the search box on IC Workflow.
  • Only students can submit their own override request.

  • It may take a few days for the override to be approved.
  • If your request is approved, you must register for the CRN of the section that was approved.
  • The IC Workflow Override form is not available for closed classes, time conflicts, internships, independent studies, and other individualized instruction courses.
