Overtally Process

Requesting  an overtally into a closed course is an electronic process initiated by an email from the student requesting the overtally.

  • A student seeking to register in a closed School of Arts and Sciences course must email, using his or her Old Westbury email account, the department chair with a copy to the department secretary.
  • A student seeking to register in a closed School of Business or School of Education course must email, using his or her Old Westbury email account, the respective Dean with a copy to that Dean’s secretary.
  • The subject line of the email message should read OVERTALLY. 
  • The following information is required in the body of the message:
    • Term  
    • Student’s OW ID
    • Student’s Name
    • CRN       
    • Course

If the request is denied, the department chair or Dean will notify the student via the student's Old Westbury email account only

If the request is approved, the department chair or Dean will notify the Office of the Registrar.  The Office of the Registrar will notify the student – via his or her Old Westbury email account only - when the overtally is processed.  Overtallies are not official until processed by the Office of the Registrar.

The last day to add a new class is the end of the add/drop period.
