Auditors do not earn credit for the course. If you are interested in auditing, ask the instructor of the course you wish to audit to send an email approval to our office and we will register you as an auditor in the course once the Add/Drop period has opened. Please include student name, student ID number, course subject and number, and CRN.

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.
