KHP Undergraduate Academic Advising Frequently Asked Questions
Need to schedule an Advising Appointment?
For general College of Education advising information, please visit:
How do I get an override into a class?
The KHP department has an online override process. All overrides are submitted online via KHP Undergraduate Override Request Website. The override request system generally opens at the same time as priority registration windows. The online override requests will be accepted until the end of the add/drop windows for the priority registration period. At that time the online system will be closed and override requests will be analyzed and sent to faculty for review. For Fall semesters the override request system will be reopened June 1st.
Override lists will be distributed to faculty as soon as possible. Once the requests have been closed, students will be notified AS SOON AS the instructor has identified students receiving enrollment.
This means that if a student contacts staff or an instructor personally, they will be told to check the KHP Undergraduate Advising website for the override request link. This will be the only avenue and the only timeframe for requesting any type of class override (capacity, pre-req, or restriction). We will not be accepting email requests, in person requests, or phone requests. The only way for a student to apply for an override is through the online KHP override request link.
You will be notified via email from a KHP staff member whether your override request has been accepted or denied.
Does KHP have a Facebook page?
Yes! Like our KHP Facebook Site.
Where can I find more information about the practicum?
All of your questions about KHP 577, the practicum, will be answered on the KHP Practicum webpage.
What do I do if I am studying Abroad?
Students wanting to take courses abroad should have all the proper paperwork provided by the Education Abroad Office along with course descriptions and syllabus of courses that the student would like to count for an equivalent KHP course.
