Criminology Override Form

This form is for students who are requesting a prerequisite, major or year-level override for Criminology (CC).

If you are requesting a major or year-level override, please check whether the restriction is scheduled to be removed and attempt to enrol after that date. We will not approve overrides for courses whose restrictions are scheduled to be removed.

If you have a minor in criminology, do not use this form to request an override of major restrictions. It will be denied. People with criminology minors must wait for major restrictions to be removed.

How to view restrictions:

  • Find your class
  • Click on the course title
  • Select the "Restrictions" tab in the new window that opens
  • Scroll to the bottom of the window. If the restriction will be removed you will see this information under the "Restriction Dates" heading

Note: Most third year courses will have their major and year-level restrictions removed before the semester begins.

Students requesting a major override must have a cumulative GPA of 7.00 or above. 

The completion of this form does not guarantee entry into a course. Each request will be considered by the Criminology Department chair in consultation with the Criminology undergraduate advisor.

If you have specific questions about any of the above-mentioned overrides or degree requirements, contact the Academic Advising Team at lbacademicadvising@wlu.ca or 519.756.8228 x5849.

If you have questions about completion of this form, contact the Criminology Academic Program Assistant Angela Jadric at ajadric@wlu.ca or 519.756.8228 x5623.

Please complete one form per course if you require multiple overrides.
