Registration Overrides

Issues a student an "electronic ticket" which grants access to one of your classes. This can be used in place of the Override Slip. Can be used when your class is full or if the student has a class or major different than the required one, or when requiring consent for all students. Once you submit the Override, the student is then able to register for the class in Cyberbear.

  1. In CyberBear, choose “CyberBear for Faculty and Advisers” and answer the FERPA warning.

  2. Choose the term the student will be taking the course.

  3. Choose “Registration Overrides.”

  4. Enter the student’s ID number or look the student up by name and confirm that you have the correct student.

  5. Enter the overrides. Choose the type of override and course from the drop down menu.

PLEASE NOTE: There are FOUR different types of electronic overrides:
       
- Choose “Missoula College Override” to override a college restriction. Missoula College instructors can use this override to allow Mountain Campus students to register for their classes. Missoula College students wishing to register for Mountain Campus courses should see their advisors at Missoula College. 
- Choose “Overrides” to enter consent-of-instructor overrides and overrides for student level and student major restrictions. Keep in mind that this option ONLY works for these types of restrictions. 
- Choose “Pre-Requisite Waiver” to override pre-requisite or co-requisite requirements.
- Choose the “Closed Section” override if the course has closed. This option will only appear after the first day of the term. Sorry, you can’t override a waitlist until the first day of classes.

  1. Submit, review your selections, and submit again.

  2. Remind the student that they need to register for the course via CyberBear.
