If you get a registration error, please pay attention to the specific error that comes up and you may be able to troubleshoot the problem.  Check the course prerequisites/restrictions and the course descriptions listing by clicking on the section CRN in BanWeb.  If you think you need a waiver to override an error, please see below.

Waiver forms are available from the Registrar’s Office website.
Types of waivers:

  • Filled sections: Get approval from department offering the course.  See FAQ #8 for listing of correct contact person(s) by department.  May or may not require a signed form.
  • Lacking prerequisite: Get approval from MEEM course coordinator – see an academic advisor to identify the right faculty member or the department offering the course. Prerequisites are not generally waived for required MEEM courses.
  • Instructor permission: Most commonly required to enroll in enterprise project courses.  For enterprise, may use internal ME form through the end of 1st week of the semester.  Otherwise special approval or late-add form (if after 1st week) is used.  See an advisor for these forms.
  • Special Approval/Restriction waivers: Use special approval form for instructor permission to waive class, level or other restrictions where appropriate.
  • Credit overload permission form: Approval signature from your academic advisor.  Approval from Student Affairs (Dean of Students office) necessary if on academic probation.
  • Time conflict/exam conflict: Approval from all instructors involved is required.
  • Grading Changes: Used if student wishes to change the course to an audit or pass-fail.

To obtain approvals:

  1. Print a waiver form or pick the correct form up from the ME Advising Center (most forms are available outside the offices).
  2. Fully complete your form and get required signatures.
  3. Bring completed, signed waivers to:
    • Student Service Center – First floor Administration Building
    • or ME Advising Center (for MEEM or enterprise related forms)

Enterprise: Instructor approval required for many enterprise teams, every semester. Bring enrollment form to the enterprise faculty advisor for their signature. Return signed form to ME Advising Center (204/205 MEEM) by the end of 1st week, late add procedures in effect after 1st week.  For ENT 4950 the typical instructor permission form is not used.  See FAQ #2 or here for ENT 4950 enrollment instructions.

Late Adds: After 1st week of the semester, any added courses or section changes are late adds.  See an academic advisor to determine if a late add is appropriate and to get a late add form.  MEEM course control/waiting list policies are still in effect for late-adds or section changes of MEEM courses.
