Registration Override Permit Requests

How to Request a Registration Override (myBanner)

If you encounter a registration error message and need to request a registration override you can do so by clicking on the Registration Override Request Form link at the bottom of the Add or Drop Classes or Look Up Classes pages in your myBanner.  You can view an instructional video HERE.

  • Fill out the form completely as it helps expedite the permit process.
  • The Banner override system only sends permit requests to the Area Studies Unit once a day (at 6:00 am) on weekdays.  Your permit will be granted within one business day of receipt by the Area Studies Unit.  
  • No closed class permits are being issued for online classes.
  • Submitting a request does not guarantee a space in the course.  The Area Studies Unit will review requests and make a decision based on the information received.
  • Check the status of your request on the Registration Override Requests Summary page.
  • When the decision is made, an email will be sent to your GVSU email address.
  • Registration override requests should not be submitted for the following registration errors: Repeat Count Exceeds 0, Linked Course Required, Time Conflict with (CRN) or Maximum Hours Exceeded. Click HERE for instructions on how to resolve these types of errors.
