Professors can override the following registration errors for students wishing to register in a course to which they are assigned:
- Course is closed (enrollment is at the maximum specified).
- Student does not have the required pre-requisite(s) for the course, but the chair and professor are willing to allow the student register in the course.
- Student is taking the course without the normal co-requisite, usually a lab. A student may have taken CHEM 100 in a previous year and failed the course but passed the lab. The chair or professor has decided the student may repeat the course and does not need to repeat the lab.
- Course is normally restricted by College (in banner, this means Faculty). For example, CSCI 100 is restricted to students in Arts and Business (Colleges AR and BU), but a student in Science (SC) may be permitted to register for the course.
- Course is restricted by Degree. For example, only students in the HKIN degrees may take HKIN courses. A student in BSc HNU may request permission to take HKIN 226, Personal Health and Wellness, and receives permission to do so.
- Course is restricted by Major. Same scenario as above, but rarely used.
