Registration FAQs

Registration overrides allow faculty to grant exceptions to registration restrictions, such as missing prerequisites, wrong major, a class is full, a time conflict exists, or special approval is needed for a particular student.  A few examples of when override may be needed from the instructor of the course or from a departmental advisor are:

  • You have taken a prerequisite course, but not at CSU.
  • You plan to take a prerequisite course and the advanced course in the same summer. Even if the advanced course is offered in a term within Summer Session that occurs after the prerequisite, an override is needed to take the courses “concurrently” within the span of Summer Session.
  • There is a time conflict. Some courses end at the exact time another begins. For example, one course may run from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and the next course you would like to take runs from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. You will need to request a “time conflict override” to register for the second course you wish to add to your schedule and make arrangements with the instructor.

Prerequisites are courses and/or information that are required before registration can be completed in a specific course. If students are currently enrolled in the prerequisite, they will be allowed to register for the course in question. All prerequisites may be considered met if students present evidence of credit earned in equivalent courses or if knowledge equivalent to the prerequisites indicated is demonstrated. In these cases, students will need to obtain an override from the academic department or instructor before registering. Many courses have corequisites, which are courses that may be taken in the same semester. All prerequisites and corequisites are enforced.

Prerequisites may be found in the online class schedule by clicking on the CRN and then on “View Catalog Entry”. For more information, see the Registration FAQs on RAMweb.

Course restrictions are placed on courses to allow or not allow students to register. Courses may be restricted to certain majors, minors, class levels, etc. These restrictions may change during the registration period. To view course restrictions, click on the CRN. For more information, see the Registration FAQs on RAMweb.

Selection of credits during registration is not required unless the course is offered for variable credit.

Indicate the number of credits desired when registering for variable credit courses.  The Registrar’s website has registration help documents which walk you through this process. Learn more

Sections in a multi-section course may be offered in different weeks within the semester. Care in selection of course sections is important to prevent time conflicts between courses.

The grading options available for a specific course are defined in the course listings. See also the sections on Auditors and Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Grading. If Audit or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Grading is desired, this option must be selected after registration and during the authorized schedule change period for the course.

This unique number is assigned every term to each section of every course. This number is the section identifier in the registration system. If the text says “Contact the department for registration” students must contact the department offering the course to get departmental approval.

Certain courses carry a special fee which is assessed at the time a student registers for courses. Since the costs are determined annually, course fees may vary from the stated amount listed in this section. Consult the Provost’s website (provost.colostate.edu/students) for the latest “Complete List of Special Course Fees.” Certain courses carry a variable fee, not shown in the class schedule, which is based on the student’s use of expendable material and is assessed by the academic department involved. Consult the academic department for the specific amount. All special course fees will be assessed and collected through standard student accounts receivable procedures. No fees should be paid directly to academic departments or individuals.

Course descriptions can be found on the online class schedule or through the CSU Catalog (catalog.colostate.edu).

Course Cancellation FAQs

No. If you are enrolled in a summer course(s) and you do not attend your class, you will be charged 100% tuition and fees unless you drop the course(s) before the specific term begins or by the drop deadline for the course(s).

Specific dates for registration changes are in RAMWeb, on the Weekly Class Schedule window, “Registered Course Details” link.”

General information is available on the  Cancellation/Add-Drop/Withdrawal page.

If you are not going to attend your summer classes, you need to drop them using the RAMweb system. If you know  you will not be attending Summer Session, drop your course(s) before the each specific term begins, or during the schedule change period for the course(s) so you will not be assessed tuition and fees.

Because the 4-week term is very condensed, you must to drop the courses within a certain number of class hours, which occurs within the first three days of the term. It’s the same number of class hours as the regular 16-week semester, but because the 4-week term is condensed, the window for dropping is shorter.

The Summer Session course drop deadlines and the course withdrawal deadlines differ significantly from fall and spring semester drop and withdrawal deadlines. Each summer term has its own schedule change period and course withdrawal period. Please refer to Cancellation/Add-Drop/Withdrawal, and view the specific term(s) of interest.

If you have questions, please contact the Registrar’s Office at (970) 491-4860.

It is your responsibility to know when classes begin. You can print your summer class schedule from RAMweb.

If it is clear to you that you will not be able to attend classes before the term begins, drop the classes immediately. If your classes have already begun, you may drop them online through RAMweb  until the end of the schedule change period with no assessment.

Past the end of the schedule change period, you may withdraw online until the end of the course withdrawal period, but you will be assessed 100% tuition and fees and a “W” will appear on your transcript.

If an emergency makes it physically impossible to drop courses or complete a course withdrawal, contact the Registrar’s Office by calling (970) 491-4860, or see the Registrar’s website: Registration Changes. Select the  section “Drop or Withdraw from a Course After Add/Drop or Withdrawal Deadline.”
