Registration Errors

What to do when you get Registration Errors

  • An override for a section does NOT automatically register you into that section. An override only gives you permission to register. After you have been given an override you must go online and add the class. It is possible that you may need more than one override. You will need a specific and separate override for each registration error.
  • Request an override BY NAME: Read any Registration Error Message carefully, look under STATUS. This will tell you which specific override you require.
