Students cannot add two courses to their schedule that begin or end at the same time during web registration.
Once Add/Drop begins, students are required to obtain permission from both faculty members whose courses over-lap before registering.  If approved, the faculty of the course to be added can enter a “Waive Time Conflict” override for the student in Banner.
Once the student obtains all approvals and the time conflict waiver, they can register for the course in their Banner.
