Course Waivers

During registration, you may receive a registration error message when adding your selected courses. If you receive a notification related to prerequisites/corequisites or course load, you may need to fill out a waiver to resolve the problem.

Pre/co requisite waivers

You will need a pre/co requisite waiver if you do not meet the prerequisite or corequisite requirements for a course.

Course load waivers

You will need a course load waiver if you need to register for more than the normal course load in a semester/session. 

The normal course load in any semester is 15 credit hours, and in any session, six credit hours. Certain academic programs sometimes require you to register for more than the normal course load. If this is the case, you will not need a course load waiver.
