PRE-REGISTRATION Permission of Instructor & Pre-Requisite Override

POI and Pre-Req Override Requests are handled through the student and faculty EPs. Please see the instructions below.

If you have any questions, please contact the registration help line, which will be open each semester from the time that pre-registration opens until it ends, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5pm. The phone number of the registration help line is x3222. You will be able to leave a message after hours.

PERMISSION OF INSTRUCTOR

When necessary please follow these steps to obtain the Permission of the Instructor with the electronic POI submission process:

  1. In WesMaps, click “Add to My Courses” and “To request a POI electronically, click here” to submit your request. Please note that a text message will appear above the student plan with information from the instructor regarding the POI approval process (dates, times, contact info, etc).
  2. The course will appear in your plan as "POI Requested" and the request will appear in the instructor's EP.
  3. If the instructor approves the POI, the text will disappear and the course will be eligible in the scheduling program or be eligible for adjustment enrollment.
  4. POI/PreReq approvals can be done completely electronically; however, the instructor may request additional information via email or through a face to face meeting.
  5. Please note that without the instructor's POI approval, you will NOT be enrolled through scheduling nor adjustment. You are encouraged to receive all approvals before finalizing your plan.
  6. Reminder - a Permission of Instructor Approval guarantees enrollment in the course.
  7. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the instructor and fulfill all approval processes.

PRE-REQUISITE OVERRIDE

When necessary please follow these steps to obtain a Pre-Requisite Override with the electronic pre-requisite override submission process:

  1. In WesMaps, if you click "Add to My Courses" and you do NOT meet the pre-requisite requirements, you will need to type a justification note to the instructor and click Submit.
  2. The course will appear in your plan as "PREREQ Requested" and the request will appear in the instructor's EP.
  3. If the instructor approves the override, the text will disappear and the course will be eligible in the scheduling program or be eligible for adjustment enrollment.
  4. POI/PreReq approvals can be done completely electronically; however, the instructor may request additional information via email or through a face to face meeting.
  5. Please note that without the instructor's pre-req approval, you will NOT be enrolled through scheduling nor adjustment. You are encouraged to receive all overrides before finalizing your plan.
  6. Reminder - a Pre-Requisite Override does NOT guarantee enrollment in the course.
  7. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the instructor and fulfill all approval processes.

IMPORTANT STRATEGIES FOR PLANNING PERIOD

  1. You can finalize your plan with pending POI/PreReq approvals; however, you are strongly encouraged to receive them before advisor finalization.
  2. POI/PreReq approvals can be done completely electronically; however, the instructor may request additional information via email or through a face to face meeting.
  3. Crosslisting and Grade Mode changes cannot be made while a POI is pending or denied; however, PreReqs can be edited while pending.
