Resolving Error Codes

Many registration issues will require you to contact the instructor of the course, your advisor and/or the department responsible for the course and request that they enter an override to grant you permission to register. To approve an override, they will need: your name, tech ID, and the course ID.

Once they have entered the override, you will have to log into e-services and attempt to register for the course.
