Registration Errors

What to Do if You Have a Registration Error


Any registration errors you receive will appear on your NEST Add/Drop screen below your list of Registered Classes.  For example: 

Registration Errors and Solutions

  • Class Restrictions: A course may be restricted by college/school, degree program, major or class year.
  • Closed Course:  The class is full.  The best solution is to register for an open section of the same course or a different course.
  • Duplicate Course:  You may have listed two sections of the same course. Drop one of them using the drop option listed by the course on your list of Registered Courses.
  • Instructor or Department Consent:  Permission and signature of the instructor or department is required.
  • Maximum Hours Exceeded:  Dean's office permission is required to register for more than the maximum hours for the term.
  • Prereq, Co-req or Test Score:  You have not met the prerequisite or co-requisite of the course.  Refer to the catalog for details.  For co-requisites, you MUST type the CRNs for both courses in your Class Shopping Cart at the same time.
  • Time Conflict:  Two or more of your desired courses overlap in time.

Tips for Resolving Errors

Have a list of alternate courses/CRNs handy.  You may have to re-arrange your schedule to get a set of courses that works for you based on what is available at the time you register.

To correct a registration error, add a new CRN to your Class Shopping Cart and click "Register/Submit."

Some instructors may grant exceptions for Registration Errors.  See Overrides and Exceptions.
