CSP Courses


All CSP sections cover complete course syllabi and are designed for students who want to be certain that they develop a thorough understanding of the course material. Extra time is provided for in-depth analysis of central concepts.

Override requests will be processed beginning November 19, 2018. Students may make override requests at anytime. CSP students have enrollment priority into these sections. Requests received from non-CSP students will be added to our wait list and processed as space allows beginning December 10, 2018. You can do so via walk-in advising hours (1:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. daily), by making an advising appointment online, or by calling our front desk at (734) 764-9128.

Once classes begin, enrollment into a CSP section is by permission of instructor only. Students wishing to enroll must contact the instructor.

Override FAQs

How can I get into a CSP course section?

Entrance into a CSP section requires permission of CSP. Students will need to meet with a CSP academic advisor to make these requests.

Can non-CSP students get into CSP courses?

Non-CSP students may request an override into CSP courses. These requests will not be processed until the end of the early registration period. During Summer Orientation, non-CSP students may continue to request but are not given permission for CSP courses. They are added to a wait-list maintained by the student services assistant in CSP. These requests will be processed at the end of the orientation period (early August) if there is room. The only exception to this policy is Chemistry 130: Any student who places into Chemistry 130 should be given permission for the CSP section of Chemistry 130.

How will I know if my override request has been processed?

An automated e-mail will be sent to your umich account once your override has been entered.
Go to Wolverine Access -Student Center-Permissions to view your override. Expect your override request(s) to be processed within 1-3 days of submission.

How do I search for and backpack a CSP course?

CSP courses appear CLOSED on the system at all times.
When Searching *uncheck the box that says “Show open classes only” to see all sections then scroll down to find your desired section: Math 115 section 171 OR you can Search by using the class number. These class numbers are available on the CSP course list document.

How long do I have to use the override?

CSP Overrides Expire within 24 hours of your Registration Date unless you have a special need such as a financial hold. You should inform your advisor of any special needs.

I have an override, but the class didn’t end up on my schedule?

You must register for the class on your registration date. An override does not automatically register you! Students have the responsibility of using their overrides in a timely manner.

How do CSP advisors know if a section is truly closed?

A tally and waitlist are kept in the CSP office by the Student Services Assistant. If a course is closed, you will be automatically placed on the waitlist. You will be contacted through your umich e-mail if you receive an override for the course. If you have not heard from us before classes start, waitlisted students should attend class on the first day and speak with the instructor. The instructor will have a copy of his/her waitlist.
