Registration Overrides

 

What are Registration Overrides?
Registration overrides allow faculty to grant exceptions to registration restrictions (missing prerequisites, corequisites, wrong major, class full, time conflict, etc.) or special approval for a particular student.

Who can Grant Overrides?
Faculty that are designated the primary instructor for the class may grant overrides only for their own classes.  Authorized administrative staff may also enter overrides directly into Banner.

How do I View Students with Overrides for My Classes?
You may access the Registration Overrides Summary screen from the Faculty Main Menu and view overrides for any class you are scheduled to teach.

When Should an Override be Made?
Overrides should be inputted in the system before the student attempts to register for the class.

What Information do I Need in Order to Enter an Override?
You will need to know the student's ID number or UH username, the CRN (course reference number), and the type of override needed.

What Types of Overrides are Available?

General Overrides/Permits *
Capacity Override This overrides the enrollment limit on your class
Corequisite Override This allows a student to enroll in your class without the required corequisite
Major Override This allows a student with a major other than the required major to enroll
Prerequisite Override This allows a student to enroll in your class without the required prerequisite
Repeat Hours This allows a student to repeat a class
Special Approval This allows a student to enroll in your class that requires special approval
Time Conflict This allows a student to enroll in your class even if the time conflicts with another class

 

     * UH Manoa & UH Hilo have established campus specific overrides. UHM & UHH Faculty should not use the General Overrides.

 

Important Details before you begin:

  • Once you assign an override, you cannot remove it.
  • If you are teaching more than one section of a course and want to allow the student into either section, you must enter the same override for the student for each CRN of the same course.
  • Granting an override does not register the student in the class.  The student must still register for the class.

 

To input a registration override:

  • Login to MyUH
  • Click on "Override Code Entry" under "Faculty Services"
  • BEFORE you enter a Registration Override, you must select the term and CRN and change the term/CRN as needed for different students and/or classes.

 

You will see the following Select Term screen.

  • Click on the pull down box next to "Select a Term."
  • You will see a number of terms (e.g. "Fall 2007"). Highlight desired term and select it.
  • Click on "Submit."

After successfully selecting a term, you will be returned to the Faculty Services Menu page.  Select the CRN of the course you wish to enter an override in.

  • Click on "CRN Selection" under "Faculty Services." 
  • Click on the pull down box next to "Select CRN."
  • Highlight the desired class and select it.
  • Click on "Submit."

After successfully Selecting a CRN, you will be returned to the Faculty Services Menu page. You are now ready to enter a registration override.

  • Click on "Registration Override" under "Faculty Services."
  • Enter the student’s ID by clicking on the Enter Student / Advisee ID Directly. You will need the student’s UH ID number or UH Username. You will also need the specific class CRN and the type of override needed.
  • Once you have submitted the ID and confirmed the name of the student, there will be drop-down boxes for Overrides and Courses.
