Appeals Information

For questions related to academic or administrative appeals coordinated through the academic chair offices, view the student appeals process web page. Appeals are coordinated by the Collegewide Chair for the academic discipline that the course or program falls under. Documents can be submitted to the appropriate collegewide chair through the secure, electronic Student Document Dropbox available after logging in to the myEFSC Portal. Each academic discipline is listed in the "Select Office" dropdown section of the dropbox. View details on using the dropbox.

Course Overrides

Students may request an override into a specific course because a course is full or for other reasons. Course override exceptions are not the norm at EFSC and alternate options should be discussed with an advisor before taking this route. Some overrides may not be allowed due to state or institutional guidelines. However, students may ask for override consideration but should understand that approval is at the discretion of both the course instructor and collegewide chair.
