Registering for Business Courses

If you are having trouble registering for a business course, choose from the topics below for information that may help you solve your problem:

Override Requests

We are working to improve our registration process. You may not need a prerequisite override! Go to Path2Coles.com to learn more.

There are 3 different Coles override request sites, each of which handles different types of requests:

* REPEATS - For business and non-business majors - To request permission to register for a business course more than two times. OPEN: March 27 (Summer) I April 10 (Fall)

* SPECIALS - For business and non-business majors - To request an override based on a course substitution or special Department Chair approval. Also for all other non-business major requests. Open Now for Summer 2017 I OPENS: March 13 (Fall)

* PREREQS - For business majors only – If you have a 3.0 GPA or higher in your Sophomore GPA Requirement and course-related prerequisites, the system will be open: May 12-June 1 (Summer) I July 31 – August 16 (Fall).

Please be sure to submit your request at the correct site.

Make sure the KSU Registration System is open and you are eligible to register

  • Check the Academic Calendar of the Registrar’s website for the days/times the system is open.
  • Only currently enrolled students may register during the Early Registration periods.
  • The Time Ticket section on the Registrar’s website explains how to find out your assigned registration time.

Make sure you meet the current prerequisites for the course

  • It is KSU policy that all students must meet the current prerequisites for courses, regardless of when they started at KSU.
  • You can find the current prerequisites for a course in the Courses section of the online KSU Undergraduate Catalog.
  • You can also find the current prerequisites for a course in the KSU Registration system. Use the Class Search function, and when you have a listing for a course, click on the course title to get the detailed course information, which includes the current prerequisites.

Information for Non-Business Majors

The Coles College Partner (CCP) Program allows non-business students in select major, minor, and certificate programs to enroll in upper-division (3000 and 4000 level) required and elective Coles College courses, for which they have satisfied the prerequisites.

Click here to see the courses for which you can register without a prerequisite override, organized by majors/minors in the Coles College Partner Program.

If your situation is listed below, click here to submit a Special Override Request:

* Students do not formally declare intentions of completing certificate programs and, therefore cannot be tagged in the system to enable automated registration for upper level business courses.

** Due to accreditation standards, there is a limit on the number of business courses non-business students can take. Preference will be given to students, business and non-business, who need a course for their degree requirements. Please note, you must also satisfy the course prerequisites.

Closed Class Override Requests

  • Closed Class Override requests are handled by the Department offering the course, NOT by the Coles Undergraduate Advising Center.
  • The Coles College Department Chairs require students to continue to attempt to get into the courses they want throughout the registration periods prior to Drop/Add. There is turnover in these courses as students change schedules and most undergraduate business courses have a few seats added just prior to the Final Registration and Drop/Add periods. So, you have a chance to get a seat on the first day of Final Registration and Drop/Add.
  • If you have not been able to add the course you want after the first day of Drop/Add, then you may request a Closed Class Override from the appropriate Department Chair, using the following links:
  • Be sure to attend the first day of class and make contact with the instructor. If you are given an override into a closed class, you do not want to have missed any of the class.
  • As a reminder, Closed Class Override requests generally are NOT considered prior to the Drop/Add Registration period.

Limit on Re-enrollment in a Course

Students cannot re-enroll in a course that they have already taken or attempted twice without special permission. The Coles Department Chairs will not be handling these requests. Special permission to re-enroll in business courses must be requested from the Coles College using this separate online request site.

Closed Class Override Requests are processed by Department Chairs.

Do You Have any Course Substitutions?

The KSU registration system cannot “read” the course substitutions in your file. It will not let you register for a course if you have a substitution for the prerequisite. A common example is a substitution of MATH 1107 for ECON 2300. If you have a course substitution for the prerequisite of a course you want to take, you must submit a Prerequisite Override request using the Coles online request system.
