If they grant you permission to register, forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org and she can process the override.

Declaring a major helps you and your departmental advisor create the shortest path to graduation, saving you time and money. Once you declare a major, you could qualify for departmental scholarships.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Accelerated Graduate Enrollment (AGRADE) program enables qualified seniors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to enroll simultaneously in the undergraduate and graduate programs of the College and apply a maximum of 16 credits towards both an undergraduate and graduate degree in the student's major field.
Students who elect the AGRADE program may expect to complete the bachelor's and master's degrees in five years of full-time study.
