Online Registration

Your academic adviser will provide you with your Alternate PIN to access the registration system. Once you have met with your adviser and gotten your PIN, you can find instructions HERE for the online registration module. Please note: the Registrar's Office does not issue alternate PINs to students.

You can view your registration time ticket in Banner. If you are not sure how find your time ticket, click HERE for instructions.

Any permissions (to override closed courses or prerequisites) are done by the primary instructor of the course. Please contact the instructors of the classes directly to have them give permission for you to enroll in their class. Make sure you ask them for the appropriate override. There are several kinds of overrides available.

Who should do your override? Check out this table for a quick reference:

A corequisite is where you are required to take two courses in the same semester. If you try to register for a course that has a corequisite but either leave off the corequisite OR there is a problem with the corequisite (it's closed, you need a prerequisite, etc.), you will get a coreq error. Banner is looking for the second course. If you are not going to take the second course in this term, the primary instructor must do a corequisite override.

A linked course is a course that is comprised of several components (lecture/lab or lecture/lab/clinical). You must register for all components in one transaction, or you will get a LINK error. This cannot be overridden.

**: These overrides are done in the Registrar's Office, but you will need to register on a traditional paper registration card with your adviser's signature AND the approval of the program director or Dean - check with the Registrar's Office to see whose approvals you need to procure.

NOTE: "Permission of Instructor" overrides are specific to courses that require instructor permission. It is NOT a cure-all override.
 

I need my PIN


The Office of the Registrar is not permitted to issue PINs. You must contact your academic adviser for your PIN. All students have an adviser. If you are unable to contact your adviser, you must contact your Academic School Office.

If you have lost your PIN, but have previously used it, you may contact the Registrar's Office. We will confirm that you have used it, and then will give it to you.

In-Person Registration

There are only a few instances where you will have to register in person:

  1. Independent Study
  2. Internships
  3. Student Assistantships
  4. Tutorials
  5. Study Abroad (through UC or Syracuse)
  6. "Class Restriction" error code (These are courses that, for example, are reserved for seniors. You would get a "class restriction" error if you do not have at least senior status in Banner.)
  7. "Program Restriction" error code

To register in person, you will need to get a registration card from your School office (or adviser), have your adviser and/or the instructor of the course sign the card and submit it in the Registrar's Office for processing. All other registration is to be done online.

Pass/Fail Option

To place a course on pass/fail, you must come to the Registrar's office, fill out the appropriate form, have your adviser sign it, and submit it to the Registrar's office for processing before the deadline.  (Click HERE for academic deadlines for on-campus classes and click HERE for academic deadlines for online classes.)

The only classes that can be taken pass/fail are electives.

If the course is being taken to satisfy any requirement (major, major-related, concentration, minor, etc), it cannot be placed on pass/fail.

Freshmen cannot take classes in pass/fail mode.

WHAT IS A COREQUISITE or LINK ERROR?

Corequisites are two courses that must be taken in the same semester. To register for corequisites, you must enter BOTH CRNs and click "Submit Changes" once (in one transaction). If one class is full, you will be blocked from the corequisite, as well.

Linked courses are courses that are comprised of multiple components (like lecture/lab or lecture/lab/clinical). If you try to register for the lecture, but leave off the lab, you will get a link error.

Top of Page

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR A CLOSED CLASS?

Closed courses can only be overridden by the primary instructor of a course. You must contact that instructor and request a closed-course override.

IF you request an override of a corequisite, a prerequisite, or a closed course and the instructor grants your request, they will enter the override from their Banner account. This override is specific to your ID# and cannot be used by another student. At this point, you must register for the class via your Banner account.

Once the instructor does your override, click here for instructions on how to register for the class.

NOTE: it is imperative that you tell the instructor exactly what kind of error you are getting, so s/he can enter the correct override.
