If your major is through one of the departments of CLAS, you may need to submit one of the following forms during your tenure here at MSU Denver. Please note that processing for each of the forms below can take up to 2-3 business days.
The petition for overload is for any student that wants to take more than 18 credit hours during the Fall or Spring semesters, or more than 12 credit hours during the Summer semester. Please note that you may or may not have to obtain signatures from your major’s Department Chair and an Associate Dean within the Dean’s Office of LAS, depending on your GPA, the number of hours you have completed at MSU Denver, and the number of credit hours you are requesting. All criteria are listed on the petition for overload form. The student is responsible for enrolling themselves if and when their petition has been approved.
Please note: We have changed to a new automated online process for the CLAS Petition for Overload Form. The old printable PDF version of the form is no longer available. For information about filling out and submitting the new version please see the Overload Form Users Guide.
Time conflict forms are for students that wish to take a class that may briefly overlap with another. Signatures from the professor, Department Chair, and Associate Dean are required, but only for the course that time will be missed. This may be for both courses, or only one. The student is responsible for enrolling themselves if and when their time conflict has been approved.
Late enrollment forms are for students that have been attending class since the beginning of the semester, but for whatever reason were not registered before the census date. This may include students that accidentally unenrolled themselves, or other specific circumstances in which they were not officially enrolled. Two additional pieces of documentation are also required: the late enrollment addendum (to be filled out by the professor), and the financial responsibility form (to be filled out by the student). The Dean’s Office will enroll the student in the missing course if and when it is approved.
