During registration, some WS prefix courses have a "special approval" attached to the course requiring the student to contact the WS office to be advised.
WS prefix courses requiring a special approval are called "cross-listed" courses. This means that other departments already offer the same course, with the same instructor, on the same day and time with a different Course Number (CRN).
The WS prefix for these courses are for students interested in Minoring in Women's Studies. Advising students of the special approval process helps confirm if the student is interested in being a minor in our program or if they are only registering for a WS prefix course because the cross-listed class is full.
In the past, WS prefix courses would become full of non-minor's while our minor's were left with minimal WS prefix course options to complete the minor.
All WS 2300 (face-to-face) sections are open to all students. Our sections seem to fill up quickly. If a section is full and you are requesting an override, the policy is as follows:
Students wishing to be granted an override in a face-to-face course will attend the first day of class (arriving 10 minutes early) for the section they are interested in to discuss the possibility of an override with the instructor face-to-face.
We recommend students have a back up plan of another course to register for in case you are not granted an override. You should work with your major advisor to assist you in looking at alternative courses that can get you what you need.
Are you a student that cannot meet on our campus for courses? Meaning, you are a student
working toward a degree that requires you to register for online courses for credit.
If yes, then you will have no problem registering (with assistance from our Academic
Advisor, Tricia Earl) for this online course. Please provide your R#.
If no, and you have the ability to meet here on our campus for WS 2300, face-to-face classes, then you will need to plan to register for one of those sections.
If you have another hardship that is not allowing you to meet face-to-face on this campus, please inform Academic Advisor, Tricia Earl and our department will review your request of being granted admission into our online WS 2300 classes.
Students wishing to be granted an override in an online course will need to monitor Raiderlink to see if a seat becomes available.
