requests can be submitted at the beginning of the Fall and/or Spring semesters. Requests
are not accepted during pre-registration. Students may not overload during the winter
and summer terms. Professional school students taking Harpur College courses must

Overload petition processing begins on the 5th day of each fall and spring semester.
