Departmental Policies


To request an override for a history course, please contact the instructor of the course by e-mail with the following information:

  1. Your Winthrop ID number
  2. The CRN (5-digit course code on Wingspan) of the course you need
  3. The reason you need the override for that particular section

If the override is approved, you will be notified. You then will need to register yourself for the course on Wingspan.

In most cases, requests to override section size limits will not be approved until all sections of the same course are filled. Similarly, in most cases, we will not approve size limit overrides for upper-division courses once all courses at that level are filled (or nearly filled).

We will work with you to assemble a schedule that will meet your needs.

If you have any questions, please contact the department chair, Dr. Greg Bell.
