Registration Add Errors
If the system indicates that you have a Hold on your account that prevents registration, log into MyInfo and click on "Student Services," "Student Records," and "View Holds." You must resolve the Hold in order to register for classes.
This error indicates that you have not successfully completed the necessary courses required to advance to the next level. If you completed the prerequisite at a different institution, you may bring a copy of your transcript to the instructor for their approval and request that they submit an online Add request through MyInfo to the Registrar's Office for manual entry into the course. Test scores may also satisfy prerequisites. Courses taken in high school do not satisfy prerequisites.
This error indicates that two or more of your classes overlap in time. You will either need to adjust your schedule so that there is a gap of more than 5 minutes between each class, or contact the instructor for their approval and request that they submit an online Add request through MyInfo to the Registrar's Office for manual entry into the course.
