Registration Troubleshooting

I was given a permission code, but it’s still not working.
  • Double check that you are following the steps listed above on how to use a permission code.
  • If it is still not working, check the error message. A permission code can only override class permission (department consent), closed class (class is full), and/or requisites. This is per department discretion. They do not have to allow a code to do all three or any specific combination of the three permissions.
    • If the message is stating something else, see the below error list.
    • If it is one of those three, contact who provided you the permission code.
I’m having problems getting onto the waitlist.
  • There has to be a waitlist set up by the department on the section(s) you want to be on the waitlist for. If you are not sure, contact the department of the course.
  • If there is a waitlist, make sure that you follow the steps listed above.
  • You may need to drop the course from your cart, make the change in the filter, then re-add the course to your cart for the waitlist check box to show.
I got an error when I was trying to enroll, what does it mean? What do I do?
  • Term maximum exceeded: Enrolling in the selected courses will put you over the maximum credit hour load for your college. Please contact your advisor to request an override.
  • You are unable to add this class due to a time conflict with class X: Two or more classes on your schedule conflict with the course you are attempting to enroll in. You will need to either choose courses that do not conflict or obtain permission from the instructor of the course you cannot enroll in. If you need additional help with enrollment scheduling, please contact your academic advisor.
  • The last day to enroll has passed: The last day to add a class through MyRed has passed. Registration deadlines are available on the Academic Calendar for all regular session classes. For assistance in enrolling, please contact your academic advisor regarding a late add.
  • Unable to add this class - requisites have not been met: You have not completed the necessary prerequisites or did not complete them at UNL. Please contact the department directly for a permission code or your advisor for further assistance.
  • Class X is full: Class is closed and all seats in the course have been taken. If there is a waitlist available, please follow the instructions listed on our Registration Tutorials page. If there is no waitlist available, you will need to obtain a permission code from the instructor or department of the course.
  • You are already enrolled in this class. Multiple enrollments for this class are not allowed: You have attempted to register for multiple sections of the same course within the same term. Please contact your advisor for assistance in requesting an override.
  • Department Consent Required. You must obtain permission to take this class: This class requires consent from the instructor/department prior to enrollment. Please contact the department directly for a permission code or your advisor for further assistance.
  • Term (STRM) Invalid value – Check and try again:You do not have an open matriculation for the term you are attempting to enroll in. Please contact Admissions (Undergraduate students) or Graduate Studies (Graduate students) for further assistance.
  • Hold information is located in your MyRED Message Center. If you need assistance in determining the department that controls your hold, please contact Husker Hub at 402-472-2030 or huskerhub@unl.edu.
