Override Requests

Overrides for CECS courses are reviewed and processed by the CECS Academic Affairs Office. Overrides are not permitted if a student has not met the UCF prerequisite requirements for a course or if a course is closed. There are no exceptions to this policy.

When encountering enrollment errors, students are encouraged to work with an Academic Success Coach to determine if seeking an override is appropriate.
