Closed courses

Students may obtain permission from the department chair to be signed into a course for a variety of reasons, such as closed course, waiving a pre-requisite. Students should obtain the "authorization to override a course" form and meet with the appropriate department chair. At times, the permission of the particular course instructor and/or the dean is also required. To download the form, click here.

PLS Evening Courses

Students must obtain permission from the chair of the department in which the PLS course is offered. A dean's signature is NOT required. Juniors and seniors may take a maximum of 2 PLS courses per year. Sophomores are generally discouraged from taking  PLS evening courses, although exceptions can be made at the discretion of the appropriate department chair. Freshmen may not take PLS evening courses. Day student enrollment in PLS courses is limited to 20% of the class; some day students who wish to take a specific PLS class may be unable to enroll if the 20% capacity has already been reached.


In accordance with a ruling issued by the GER committee, all three credit courses in Fine and Performing Arts fulfill the GER Art/Lit Requirement, effective now.  Please note that most studio courses require an art fee in addition to normal tuition charges.  Remember that during pre-registration, students and advisors can access such information by clicking on the CRN number for the course. Please direct any questions on this matter to the GER committee or to the department of Fine and Performing Arts.
