The forms in this section allow you to request permission to enroll in Cluster One General Education course. You do not need permission to add an open seat in a Cluster One course UNLESS you are seeking a repeat-forgive having earned a D- or higher, or you want to take a second critical thinking class. Human Communication and Writing courses are NOT repeatable except as repeat-forgive. A request does not guarantee a seat. Request forms do not accommodate swapping. If you want to SWAP, please go to My Madison and look for open seats. There are NO OVERRIDES offered in Cluster One classes.
For SPRING semester registration: Any student who has not completed Cluster One is allowed to register for any open seat in Cluster One. If you cannot find an open seat during advance registration, you should continue to look for seats through the open enrollment period that concludes on the second Tuesday of the Spring semester at midnight.
If you will NOT complete Cluster One during your first academic year at the institution, you should make every effort to complete the course(s) as soon as possible.
Because students are no longer pre-registered into Cluster One courses, the program no longer offers deferrals.
