The College of Engineering is implementing a new policy for both Overloads and Underloads. The rationale is to help students plan during pre-registration - instead of an afterthought during the first two weeks of classes.
Please help us in communicating with all students, on the importance of planning, as well as the relevance of discussing with advisors for selecting classes.
Please help us to communicate with all December 2018 graduating seniors about the Deadline to make their request for underload.
What you need to know:
The college of engineering deadline to request an Overload or Underload for summer/fall 2018 is June 1st, 2018.
All students, except MAY18 graduating seniors, will be receiving the attached email on Thursday 3/29 at 6pm (via secure messaging).
Both Overload and Underload requests will be done online (so that all UPO staff can manage their time more efficiently; that includes Bob).
Both online requests forms will open on Monday April 2, 2018 (on the first day of pre-registration) and will close by the deadline (*).
Students will most likely not hear back until after we have grades for the semester - we will be handling all requests on a rolling basis.
All information can be found at http://go.engineering.illinois.edu/Overload
(*) Students who miss the deadline will have very limited options (for example overloads requests can only be submitted on the 11th day of classes via the add-drop portal if requesting after June 1st). Students will receive instructions on the “Form has ended” screen –that you will be able to see if you try to access the form yourself after June 1st. We are currently modifying this.
