Overrides for Closed Sections

I will not sign an override if you:

Instructors in the Math Department don't sign overrides for courses which are closed because they're at the class limit. Overrides are only done by the chair or assistant chair. (This policy is different from what other departments do. We do things this way so we can compare the reasons all the people waiting on a given section have for needing that section. Then we can let in the people with the best reasons.)

(The number of chairs in the room doesn't matter. We try to balance out class sizes so professors have equitable and reasonable loads. It isn't right for one prof to have thirty students while another has ten.)

If a section is full, then:

If you're locked out of a section for other reasons (like placement or a prerequisite), you should also see the chair or assistant chair.
