Registration Overrides - Paper Processes for WebAdvisor Stops

Use the paper Registration Override form for the following transactions:

1. Conflict: Approval to register into a course that conflicts with another. The strategy would be to register online for the most important course so you don't lose the seat, and then get the paper override form to approve the registration into the second course. Sample error message: PE-111-01 conflicts with ACCT-297A-01.

2. Closed Course: Approval to register into course that is currently closed despite the current course capacity.  Requires both the instructor and department head approval. Sample error message: PE-158B-01 - Course Filled. Either add to wait list or look for an available section.

3. Co-requisite Exception: Approval to add a course without the required co-requisite course or lab. Requires department head approval. Sample error message: BIOL-111-01 requires concurrent registration in BIOL-113.

4. Retake Override: You may be stopped from retaking a course if you've already repeated the course once, or if you've reached the course retake cap set by each department or program. Department head approval is required. Sample error message: JOUR-101-01 - JOUR-101 has been taken 2 time(s). 2 allowed

Approvals for instructor consent, prerequisite and registration restriction overrides may be made by the instructor online.

Completed registration override forms should be brought to the University Registrar's office for processing.  Bring forms only when your registration window is open.

Students are responsible for meeting all registration deadlines - late submissions will not be accepted.
