The forms in this section allow you to request permission to enroll in a Cluster One General Education course. You do not need permission to add an open seat in a Cluster One course UNLESS you seeking to 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.
There are NO OPEN SEATS available during advance or open registration for Fall 2013. For a seat in a Fall 2013 course, you are encouraged to look on MY Madison beginning on August 1st after transfer and first year orientation and registration is complete.
If you will NOT complete Cluster One during your first academic year at the institution, you may request a deferral. A deferral requests a seat in a Cluster One course in a future semester. Deferrals are NOT processed after registration for the next semester has begun. A deferral request must be completed and submitted AFTER the final add date for the current semester (typically the second Tuesday of the regular semester) and PRIOR to the Friday before Spring Break (Fall request) or October 1st (Spring request). The request for a deferral allows you to choose the course you would like to be enrolled in, but not the section or the instructor. You are only permitted to request a deferral for ONE Cluster One course.
