Override Requests

Overrides for a CECS course 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 Advisor to determine if seeking an override is appropriate.

How to Submit a CECS Override Request

Undergraduate course override requests should be submitted to the appropriate CECS academic department for approval. Graduate student course override requests should be submitted to Be sure that your override request includes the following information to avoid processing delays:

  1. CECS Override Form
  2. Proof of prerequisite (i.e.- screenshot of unofficial transcript, course history, etc.) that clearly shows:
    • Your name
    • The name of the institution where the prerequisite course was taken
    • Final grade in the prerequisite course
  3. Copy of your Photo ID

*Please Note: Override requests are processed during normal business hours in the order they are received. There is not a way to expedite override requests and processing time may be extended during peak registration periods.
