SAS Faculty Resources: How to Update the Catalog


Courses may be set up where faculty or department permission must be obtained by the student prior to registering for a course.


Faculty or administrative assistants can enter the permission override into the Banner Information System, which allows the student to then register online.


Steps to Enter a Registration Override:

  1. Log into Banner.
  2. Click on "Faculty and Advisor Menu."
  3. Click on "Registration Overrides."
  4. Enter the student's SPU ID number.
  5. Verify student selection by clicking "Submit."
  6. Select the appropriate override and course (see below for explanation of different overrides).
  7. Submit changes.
  8. You have now entered an override for the student. The student must now register online through their own Banner account.


    Code Description of Override
    SPE Will override special approval requirements, such as instructor permission.

    Will override restrictions, such as major, level (nonmatriculated, as opposed to graduate) and program.

    PRE-REQ Will override the prerequisite requirement. Be sure you are entering the course reference number (CRN) the student wants to register for, not the actual prerequisite that the student has not completed.

    TIME Will override a time conflict.
