This form is used to request an override to register for BIOL395 (Directed Study), BIOZ395 (Directed Study) BIOL492 (Independent Study), BIOL495 (Research and Thesis) or BIOL451 (Biology of Cancer II).
Students must have secured a mentor with whom to study before submitting this request.

Before an override is granted your mentors approval of this request will be sought. Mentors can submit their approval by email to Dr. Sarah Golding segolding@vcu.edu

PLEASE NOTE: Research classes still count towards the 19 credit Fall/Spring max or 15 credit Summer Max.. If you register for more than 19 credits in one semester you will be required to file an overload request form.

The priority deadline by which to register for is May 1st for Summer and Fall registration and Dec 1st for Spring registration.
If you mentor has agreed to take you on and confirms that with Dr. Golding you WILL be granted the override. However, the overrides will not be granted until after Dec 1st or May 1st, please be patient. We can register students for these classes all the way through the add/drop period for the current semester.

If you have any questions regarding this form, mentor selection, or requirements for the successful completion of these classes please address your questions to Dr. Sarah Golding segolding@vcu.edu
