Common Registration Add Errors

If the message indicates that you should do so, contact the section instructor if you believe you should be granted an override (or call the department if the instructor is not available). Provide your ISU ID and the course CRN. If granted an override, you must then go back into BengalWeb and register.

Prerequisite required: Must take another class first — or have a high test score. If you think you qualify to take the class anyway, contact the instructor or the department chair to ask for an override. If granted, you can then attempt to register for the class.

Corequisite required: Must also take another class at the same time, such as a Biology class which has a corequisite lab. You must enter both numbers in the worksheet at the same time to register for these classes together. Contact the instructor or department chair if you think you need an override for this restriction. If granted, you can then attempt to register for the class.

Major restriction: Only students majoring in the field can take the class. If you are not in that major, contact the instructor or department chair to ask for an override. If granted, you can then attempt to register for the class.

Instructor permission: Need special permission to register for the class. Contact the instructor or department chair to get the permission and an override. If granted, you can then attempt to register for the class.

Maximum hours exceeded: Most undergraduate students are only allowed to register for 18 credits. To register for more, you must get permission from the Dean of your college. Note: Not recommended your first semester at ISU.

Class level restriction: Some classes are open only to students at certain levels, i.e., juniors or seniors. If you want to take the class, contact the department for permission, or wait until you are at the correct class level. Note: Must be admitted to Graduate School to take 5000-8000 level courses.
