Waiver Forms

Print  a “waiver form” from the Registrar’s Office website.
03 Special Approval/Restriction Waiver is most common.

If you get an error, check the course pre-reqs/co-reqs/restrictions in the course descriptions listing. You can quickly get to the course description by clicking the CRN in the Schedule of Classes.
To obtain approval:

  1. Print a waiver form.
  2. Complete your form and obtain signature approval from the Course instructor or department advisor.
  3. Bring completed, signed waivers to:
    • Student Services Center – Admin Bldg.
    • EERC 131 for EE courses and ECE enterprise waivers

Enterprise: Instructor approval required for most enterprises, every semester. Bring waiver form to the enterprise faculty advisor or pick up waiver from your enterprise advisor. Bring signed form to Judy for ACE, WCE, & Blue Marble. For other Enterprises, see their sponsoring department if approval is needed to register & take signed form to Student Services Center (Admin Bldg).

Class Restriction on a UN course? Class restrictions for the UN/SBS/HUFA courses will be removed after the sophomores and freshmen have scheduled – near the end of the 2nd week of the initial registration period.

Full Class? Go to department that offers the class for permission to enroll in a filled-section.  First-year students use Orange form. Others use Green Filled section form available in Advising Offices. I cannot get you into full classes in other departments such as MATH or SS.
ENG courses:    See Cathy, Dillman 112, in the Fundamentals of Engineering Department.

Waivers for non-EE courses need to be signed by the department advisor or instructor for that course. Bring signed wiavers to the Student Services Center.
