Effective starting Spring 2017, students will have the ability to Late Add courses via Banner self-service (SSB). Beginning the 2nd week of classes, when “regular” registration activity typically ends, students who wish to register for a course will be able to add the class to their Add or Drop Courses Worksheet in Banner self-service (SSB). (The previously used “Request to Register Late” paper form will no longer be available and adding courses will only be available online.) Every active section in the master schedule will have the Instructor Permission restriction applied to it at midnight on the last day of the established drop/add deadline (For Spring 2017 that will be at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, January, 29th). When a student attempts to add a course, their action will produce an Instructor Permission error and prevent the registration. An automatic email will be generated and sent to the student’s GMAIL account. The student can then send the detailed email message directly to the email of the instructor of the class, requesting permission to add the class. If the instructor agrees, the instructor will enter the override in Banner self-service (SSB). The student will be able to see that the override has been granted by viewing their Registration Status screen for that semester. The student would then be able to add that course by entering the four digit CRN on the Add or Drop Classes Worksheet. A late fee of $20.00 will automatically be assessed on the student’s account for each course add. A step by step process explanation can be found HERE.
This online process eliminates the cumbersome practice of having paper forms signed and returned to the Registrar’s Office by the established deadline, allows all correspondence between the student and instructor to occur via email, and expedites the student’s ability to attend class faster and stay on track. Students should be reminded that they should only be attempting to add a class if they have been attending the class since the beginning of the semester.
