A registration override may be obtained from the instructor of the course or their designee in the department once the class schedule is available on the web. It is not necessary to wait for the first day of class. The option to override students into a course is at the instructor’s or department’s discretion. When requesting an override, be sure to tell the instructor or department what registration error message was received so that person can provide the correct override. Once the instructor or department representative electronically processes an override, you must register for the course on RAMweb. Depending on what the override is for, you may need to add the class by choosing the “Enter CRNs” tab instead of the “Find Classes” tab. When you enter the CRN, the class should drop to your summary, assuming the correct overrides are in place, and allow you to register.


Credit overloads can be given by a student’s advisor. Please allow one to two business days for the overload to be processed once the advisor submits it. Maximum credit loads without obtaining an overload are as follows:

  • Undergraduate – 18
  • Graduate – 15
  • Professional (DVM) – 26
