Student Resources

How to run a "Course Prerequisite Checking Report" via Cognos.


Registration Overrides

Students requiring registration overrides may be granted the appropriate permission via WINGS Express (Instructor Override) or Banner. This allows the student to complete online registration without the need for a paper add/drop registration form.

  • Important Note about Closed Class permissions: If a course section has a waitlist, Closed Class permission should not be granted. Students should register for the waitlist. Once online registration (and, thus waitlist registration) has ended for the term, instructors/departments may use the paper add/drop form to grant closed class permission with in-person registration at RaiderConnect.

Instructor Approval - WINGS Express

When a course requires Instructor Approval, the primary instructor for a course may enter Instructor Approval via WINGS Express.

Banner Override - All Permissions

Department/College personnel may enter registration overrides/approvals for all other registration restrictions directly in Banner.

Banner Override Guide (PDF)

  • Department/College personnel who need to grant overrides in Banner must have Banner Admin Access.

Departmental Registration Actions

Administrative registration/drop procedure for departments

Departments requiring administrative, non-student initiated registration activity (e.g., drops for lack of pre-requisites) should complete and submit the respective request form for individual or multiple-student requests.

This procedure does not replace the normal Registration/Drop/Add form used to grant department/instructor overrides used by students to drop/add in person at RaiderConnect.

In keeping with FERPA and internal data integrity policies, documents which include UID and Student identifying information must not be submitted via email unless password protected.

Department Registration Request Forms:

  1. Department Registration Request - INDIVIDUAL STUDENT
  2. Department Registration Request - MULTIPLE STUDENTS (identical CRN add or drop action for multiple students)

Submit form(s) using one of the following methods:

  1. Password-protected attachment via email to wsu-registrar@wright.edu (send password separately)
  2. Upload to Filelocker and share to wsureg.
