Exceptions


The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) recognizes that there are legitimate reasons for some daytime courses to be offered at times that do not coincide with standard sections. In these unusual cases, department chairs and deans must request a one-time exception, following the policies and procedures outlined below. These policies and procedures have been adopted to enable students to register for the number of courses needed to progress toward a degree in an orderly and timely manner and to make optimal use of physical resources, including classroom and parking space.

Approval of Exceptions

Requests for non-standard sections must be approved by the following: department chair or associate dean; dean or dean’s designee; and the Office of the Registrar.

Procedures for Requesting Exceptions:

  1. The department chair or associate dean will submit the request to the dean or dean’s designee.
  2. Deans should submit all recommendations to the Office of the Registrar no later than three weeks before the final class schedule is due (deadline set by the Registrar's Office). In instances where hiring or other decisions are dependent upon approval, requests should be submitted as early as possible.
The Office of the Registrar will notify deans of the decision.
