Policy for Requesting Overrides for Full or Closed Courses

All requests for an override into a full or closed course are considered by the Department Mathematics. Course instructors in the Department of Mathematics do not provide overrides for full or closed courses. The Department of Mathematics will not approve course override requests if there are still open course sections in almost all cases. Once all available seats have been taken for a specific course, you will need to work with your academic advisor to create an alternative course plan. Overrides are not approved for instructor, section, or schedule preference!

Statistics Courses: All Statistics courses like STAT 218, 380, 462, and 463 are taught and administered by the Department of Statistics. If you are requesting a permission code for a Statistics course, please contact the instructor directly or reach out to the Department of Statistics office staff at

Course Prerequisite Issues: Please check with your academic advisor if MyRed is blocking your enrollment due to missing prerequisites. Math course sections numbered in the 800s are only for students in the Nebraska Now program, so please check the section number if you receive a prerequisite error.

Please contact Doug Pellatz if you have additional questions about the above policy.
