Giving a Student Web Registration Authorization

Supporting Documentation


This page provides the information needed to record exceptions that are granted by an academic department, allowing a student to register for a course for which they are not eligible (e.g. major/class restrictions, prerequisites/corequisites, enrollment limit).


  • Exceptions are entered during each registration cycle and must be in place before the student can register.

Target Audience

  • Academic departments enter the exceptions in Banner for individual students.

Supporting Systems

  • Banner Admin Pages - Student Registration Permit-Override (SFASRPO) form.

In preparation, you should know the student's EID, the Banner term code, the permit code, and the section's CRN (or subject and course number) associated with the exception you want to record. Visit the Glossary of Terms Banner Codes and Fields for more information.
