Isenberg Course Override Request Form
Isenberg School students should be able to enroll in any courses for which they are eligible using the SPIRE course registration system. If you are not an Isenberg School major or do not meet eligibility requirements, you may request a course override.
The Isenberg Course Override Request Form is for students to request an Isenberg course that they cannot register for on SPIRE. An explanation box is provided on the form for students to explain why they need the course and why SPIRE is not allowing them to register.
These requests will be accommodated only under extenuating circumstances. Read the instructions below carefully.
Isenberg Course Override Request Form Instructions
This form is to be used to submit an override request for the following Isenberg School of Management core courses only:
ACCOUNTG 221, ACCOUNTG 222, FINANCE 301 (formally FINOPMGT 301), MANAGMNT 260, MANAGMNT 301, MARKETNG 301, OIM 210 (formally SCH-MGMT 210), SCH-MGMT 310, SCH-MGMT 311, SCH-MGMT 313, SCH-MGMT 315, SCH-MGMT 316, SCH-MGMT 317, SCH-MGMT 390's, and SCH-MGMT 494BI.
For courses not listed above, students should contact the instructor for permission to override into the course.
Students should use this form only if the course prerequisites are met. For example, you are in the appropriate class (i.e. junior, senior) and you have met all required prerequisites, but SPIRE is failing to recognize your eligibility and is not allowing you to enroll in the course. Another example is that you transferred a course into UMass Amherst from another school and SPIRE does not recognize the transferred course as the equivalent of a prerequisite required for enrollment. If you are getting a red "X" when you try to enroll in the course, read the error message SPIRE provides. Perhaps there are prerequisites you do not meet or you are unable to enroll for a reason unrelated to meeting prerequisites.
Before using this form, check the course prerequisites by clicking on the class entry on SPIRE, or get a PDF version of the University course schedule available here.
Course override requests are processed on an on-going basis. You will be notified via email regarding the status of your request. Please check your UMail regularly for notification.
Isenberg Course Override Request Forms are reviewed by the Undergraduate Dean's Office in the Isenberg School of Management. Form submission is a request that will be considered, and is not guaranteed to be granted. Please note, instructor permission does not guarantee enrollment into a course.
