THE HONORS COLLEGE WILL BEGIN ACCEPTING OVERRIDE REQUESTS FOR FALL 2022 COURSES ON AUGUST 15, 2022. THE DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR AN OVERRIDE IS AUGUST 22, 2022.
Honors College Override Policy
An override is a special clearance that grants a non-Honors student the ability to register for an Honors College class if there are available seats in the course.
Overrides for non-Honors students are NOT available in classes that are at capacity.
The Honors College strives to maintain small class sizes so overrides into Honors sections, particularly for non-Honors students, are rare. Only the Honors College can grant overrides to Honors College classes.
Instructors of record, Major Academic Advisors, College Departments, etc. may not grant overrides for Honors College courses.
- Non-Honors students who receive an override typically have a high UofSC GPA (3.5 or higher) and have demonstrated mastery in the subject matter of the course requested.
- Overrides are considered on a case-by-case basis. If an override is granted, an email will be sent notifying you and you will have a limited time to respond (usually 24 hours). Please check your email and respond promptly so you may be registered for the requested course in a timely manner. Failure to respond by the time specified may result in the override not being granted.
