Course Overrides

How to Request an Override

 

When you get a Registration Error, you may request an Override (waiver/permission to register for a course).

Start by contacting the appropriate department for instructions. 

For Departments that Issue Paperless Overrides

Check the list of Department Contacts.

Email the department override coordinator(s) and follow any specific instructions. Provide:

  • Your Name and NET ID.
  • Type of registration error you received.
  • CRN (or course number and section) for the course in question.

The department contact will obtain the appropriate approval, set up your override permission, and notify you when it is ready. You must then register yourself for the course.

  • You may have a limited amount of time to register for that course before the override expires.
  • Check your Creighton email often for Override notices.

For Departments not on the Paperless Overrides list

Complete and save this Override Form.

  • Fill out the appropriate section(s) of the form; save it on your computer.
  • Email the form to the appropriate department for approval.
  • Ask the department to FORWARD the approved form to the Registrar's Office. 
  • NOTE: WHILE CREIGHTON OBSERVES COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, WE WILL ACCEPT FORMS EMAILED TO REGISTRAR@CREIGHTON.EDU, BUT THEY MUST BE EMAILED BY THE DEPARTMENT OR DEAN'S OFFICE ONLY!
  • Registrar's Office staff will register you for the course.

You may need more than one type of override for a course!

  • Pay attention if you get a prerequisite, co-requisite or test score error. 
  • The course may also be closed, or you may need specific instructor/department consent, for example.
  • Get all your overrides at once to prevent delays in your registration process.
