Registration Permissions

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.

Entering a registration override

  • Log into Banner.
  • Click on “Faculty and Advisor Menu.”
  • Click on “Registration Overrides.”
  • Enter the student’s SPU ID number.
  • Verify student selection by clicking “Submit.”
  • Select the appropriate override and course (see below for explanation of different overrides).
  • Submit changes.

You have now entered an override for the student. The student must now register online through their own Banner account.
