Registration

  • If you don't know if you got a high enough score on the AP exam to get credit for a prerequisite course like ENGL 1101 English Composition I, you should sign up for the course as if you did not get the credit. When your score comes in and you verify that you will be or have been given credit, you should then go back in to the course registration system and register for the next class in the sequence.

    So if you get AP credit for ENGL 1101, after that credit shows in our system you should change your registration to be in ENGL 1102.

  • Depending on the class you want into, you will request a prerequisite bypass from the department the course belongs to. You should attach proof of your score when you request this bypass, which includes your name. Most prerequisite bypass requests are done through online forms. You should contact your advisor to see where to go.

  • Save the web page that shows your name, KSU ID number and your math recommendation as a PDF or screenshot and send it to your advisor with your request to register for MATH 1190.
  • Look at your curriculum sheet, DegreeWorks, or ask your advisor. Pick classes for which you have taken the prerequisite. Mix your general education (core courses Areas A-E) with your major courses (Area F + Major Requirements).
  • No. If there is still room on the wait list, you should put yourself back on. No one besides the registrar can change the registration of a student.
  • What you see bundled with the lecture is something called "recitation", which is a time set aside every week to go over what you did in your lab. This way, you get to spend more time in lecture learning new content, as opposed to spending a large portion of time simply reviewing or correcting old material.

    You should ALWAYS register for PHYS 1111 and PHYS 1111L. Otherwise, you will only be getting 3 credit hours for a 4 credit hour requirement.

  • Undergraduate level students who qualify for an override may request an Overload Request form in the Office of the Registrar. Graduate level students may obtain approval from the Graduate Program director.

  • Copy the CRN of the course you want and in Owl Express on the Class Registration (Add or Drop Classes) page put the CRN in one of the textboxes. Click submit changes.

    A registration add error should pop up. It should say "Closed - # Wait Listed" and have a drop down box under the "Action" column. Click the drop down box and select "Wait List". Click submit changes again. This should place you on the wait list as the next person in line.

    Once you are priority 1 and a space becomes available in the class, you will receive an email notification telling you to register for the course within 12 hours or you will lose your spot and have to re-register for the wait list.

  • On Owl Express click the "Registration" link or tab, then click "Display Your Class Schedule and Grades". The wait list priority for each class you are waitlisted should show up in one of the columns in your registration data.

  • NO! Advisors no longer have the ability to do that.

Registration Errors

  • This means that you don't have credit for a prerequisite course on your records. If you aren't sure what the prerequisites for a course are, you should check the academic catalog.

    If you do have the credit but for some reason it is not on your records (e.g. you're taking it at another institution at the time you're trying to register for the following course), what you do may differ by department or college. If it is a CS, CSE, CGDD, SWE, or IT course that you want to register for, get a copy of your unofficial transcript where your credit shows up and contact Ashley McClure (amcclur6@kennesaw.edu).

    If you substituted credit for a prerequisite course, you will need to fill out a prerequisite bypass request form. For other courses, contact the appropriate department.

  • eCore courses have a special introductory quiz which you must take before you sign up for an eCore class for the first time. You can get to that quiz here: http://ecore.kennesaw.edu/starting/introquiz.php 

    Math and Science courses should have the same prerequisites as regular KSU math and science courses. If you took the introduction quiz and it's still giving you problems, contact ccseadvising@kennesaw.edu.

  •  This means you've attempted the course twice already. A course attempt includes anything which is on your transcript - even if you withdraw from the course.

    For any course in CCSE (so anything that starts with ACST, CS, CSE, CGDD, SWE or IT), submit your request with this form.

    For math or science courses, use this form: http://csm.kennesaw.edu/advising/forms/csm-repeat-override.php 

  • Corequisites mean that two courses should be taken together at the same time. The error should list the course that you need to sign up for at the same time as the one you got the error for.

    If the section number for a course has a "C" in it, e.g. CSE 1301/C76, it is a learning community.

    Transfer students and all students after their first semester at KSU are ineligible to register for first year learning communities. We do not allow overrides even if something might work better with your schedule.

  • You are trying to sign up for a graduate level course (if you are an undergrad) or an undergraduate course (if you are a grad). You can't do this without special permission. For undergraduate students wanting a graduate level course, you need to apply and qualify for the Accelerated Bachelors-to-Masters Program.

  • You are trying to sign up for courses that are at the same time on the same days or may have some overlap. We will not allow this or override this.

  • The course is full. If there is a wait list you should get on it or find an alternate course. If it doesn't look like anyone is enrolled in the course, this is because the system does not display the amount of enrolled students once the course becomes full. We do not override full courses.

  • You need to sign up for whatever course is linked to the class you're trying to sign up for. Usually these courses are CHEM, BIOL or PHYS, or something with a lab. This may also be called a "Corequisite Error".
