Course Overload Request Form

Use the following form to request an overload for a course offered by the Faculty of Science in the current term.  Submitting a request does not guarantee an overload. Course capacity is limited and even in cases of strong need not all overload requests can be accommodated. We recommend you continue to watch for openings in the course while we review your request.  

The USC will review Spring 2021 overload requests from May 3rd-May 10th. Summer 2021 overload requests are reviewed June 28th-July 2nd. We are not accepting overload requests for the Fall 2021/Winter 2022 terms at present.

If this course will be your third attempt, do not fill out this form before speaking with a program advisor. 

If you are a student from a program outside the Faculty of Science, please ensure you have a note on file from your home faculty confirming this course is required prior to submitting the form. We deny overload requests submitted without home faculty confirmation.
