COMMON TYPES OF REGISTRATION ERRORS
Pre-requisite: If you are attempting to register for a course and have not completed the required prerequisite course with appropriate grade or have high enough standardized test scores to be eligible to take requested course. If you think you have met the prerequisite, please fill out: Registration Error Form
Co-requisite: This is commonly seen in science courses which require separate laboratory registration. If you have passed either the lecture or lab and need to take one by itself, please fill out: Registration Error Form
College/Field of Study restriction: Some courses are reserved for students with a specific major or who are admitted into a specific college. If the course requested is required for your current major, please fill out: Registration Error Form
Class restriction: Courses reserved for students who are part of a specific class standing. Class standings are based on credit hours earned: Freshmen (0-29), Sophomore (30-59), Junior (60-89), and Seniors (90+).
Permits: Permits are not to be confused with the above error types. Students that need a permit for a course should request the permit via email from the instructor of the course. For example, this could be an internship course or a study abroad course. Consult the Faculty Directory for email address. The email should include the student’s U-number and the CRN (Course Reference Number).
Closed Section Overrides: A closed section override will allow students to enroll in a
course at maximum capacity for the purpose of current term graduation and/or
sequenced degree progression. This type of override is issued with instructor
permission and can only be granted if a classroom has not reached its maximum
fire code capacity. If you are a student wishing to obtain a closed section override,
please email your request to your academic advisor. Include your USF ID and the 5-
digit CRN (Course Reference Number). For help identifying your advisor, visit Find My Academic Advisor.
