Registration

Advising codes

Advising codes are 6-digit numbers required to register for fall and spring semesters. When discussing your registration for the upcoming semester, your advisor will give you your code.

Most freshman and sophomores will have an advising code. Juniors or seniors in specific majors may need an advising code. Students on probation will also have an advising code.

Summer registration

*No advising code needed to register for summer courses.

When registering for NR 220 and/or F 230 be sure to include the lecture and the lab.

Course overrides

After you’ve met with your academic advisor for semester planning, use the following template when emailing the course instructor for override requests.

Subject of the e-mail: “Override request for *course prefix and number*
Example: Override request for NR420

Body of the e-mail:

Dear, Professor *name*,

My name is *insert your name *.  I am a *insert your major*major here at CSU, and my ID number is *insert CSU ID number*. After meeting with my academic advisor for semester planning, I am asking if you would consider granting me an override into *insert course prefix and # and title*, for the upcoming semester. The reason I am asking for the override is *insert an explanation and/or justification for needing override. Include if it is a time conflict, pre-req, etc. pre-req request.*  The CRN number for the lecture is *CRN for lecture*and the preferred lab/recitation CRN number is *CRN for lab/recitation*.  Thank you for your time and consideration. 

*your name and CSU ID #*

When requesting an override, be sure you tell the instructor or department what registration error message you received so that person can provide the correct override. Once the instructor or department representative electronically processes an override, you must register for the course on RAMweb. You are not able to use the “shopping cart” method when you have an override but, instead, must type the CRN into the space provided on the Registration Worksheet.

Course override form instructions

A registration override form is for students who have already received permission from the course instructor or their advisor to register. It is not necessary to wait for the first day of class to petition for an override. The option to override you into a course is at the instructor’s or department’s discretion and can be processed by either party.
