Request a Course Override

Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

Summer Quarter 2022 Registration begins Tuesday May 3rd.

Phase II is Monday May 9th. 

Journalism courses for Summer 2022 do not require override codes, with the exception of internships and editorships. See Canvas for more information.

Fall Quarter 2022 Registration begins Tuesday May 10th.

Phase II is Tuesday August 30th.

Override requests for Fall are due by Noon on Monday May 2nd. 

Courses that require overrides for Fall 2022: J305, J346, J380, J404, J440, J446, J480, and Klipsun. 
If your override request form has not been submitted by the deadline, it is unlikely that you will get into those classes.


Please check to make sure you meet the prerequisites for a class before requesting an override. Do not request overrides for classes that do not have an OV on them.

If you have a K grade in a course that is a prerequisite for a class you’d like to take, still submit an override request now, but be aware that the override will not be considered until the K grade is complete.

The J430 Internship requires an override, but is a separate application process. You do not need to submit this form for J430. 

Please Note: Being placed on the list for a class does not guarantee you a spot in the class. Overrides are determined based on graduation quarter and need and are decided two days before registration. For more information, please see the Journalism Department Internal Wait-List Policy.

Email Lydia Love if you have questions about your overrides.
