If you are interested in registering for my Spring 2018 Machine Learning course (01:198:536) and do not have the prerequisites or for some other reason need a Special Permission (SPN) or Prerequisite Override, you will need to fill out a request here:
cs535 Spring 2018 SPN & Prereq Request Form
Note that you will need a Google account in order to sing in and see the form.
Please do not email me with individual requests. I will be issuing SPNs and Prerequisite Overrides no earlier than 2 weeks before the start of the Spring 2018 semester.
Many students have contacted me asking about Special Permissions or Prerequisite Overrides for 206 & 535 courses for Fall 2017. As of now, Thursday, August 31, the status is as follows: I am told that our administrative staff is still processing requests. I have yet to receive any lists of students who submitted their requests.
Once I have more information, I will post it here.
Update (9/5/2017): This afternoon I finally received access to SPN request lists. I will be processing those requests in the next few days.
