Override Course Requisites

The Override Course Requisites page allows authorized users to post courses to a student's record in order to meet requisite requirements. This page is a clone of the Transfer Course Credits Manual page in UAConnect with several notable exceptions that are indicated.

When posting courses on this page:

  • The course will not count in calculating hours earned nor factor into grade point calculation.
  • The course will not appear in the student's transcript.
  • The course will not appear on the student's study list.
  • The course cannot be used as a course substitution for degree requirements.
  • The course will meet requisite requirements for enrollment purposes and requisite checking where a grade of C or better is required for the requisite course.

Follow these steps if you receive the "Model is in 'Completed' status" error message when attempting to post the work:

override error message: Model is in 'Completed' status because there is no entry for this student for this program.

  1. Click OK to return to the UA Course Credits by Term page.
  2. Click the Unpost button to reverse the transaction.
  3. Verify that the correct Academic Program information is entered on the UA Transfer Course Entry page.
  4. Click Save to enter the new program information.
  5. Repeat steps 12 through 14 to verify Posted status.

Note: Once a course is successfully posted using this page, it will meet enrollment requisites for any other course which names it as a prerequisite or corequisite.

Other factors such as a full class, time conflict or consent may prevent the student from enrolling in the course. If the override is intended to be temporary, unposting and deleting it at the end of that time will remove the override.

Existing Transfer Credit or Posted Override

Any existing transfer credit work or overrides will be inactive on the UA Transfer Course Entry page. Access to modify the transfer credit work is not available but editing existing overrides or adding new ones will be.

  • To edit or delete an existing override, you must first unpost it on the UA Course Credits by Term page. (See above)
  • To add a new override, click the plus button (+) at the Transfer Credit Model level and follow the instructions above to post the override.
