CyberBear Registration Error Messages

The Cyberbear registration system will alert a student when a course request is denied. The following are Cyberbear error messages.

Campus Restriction

Students are admitted to specific campuses depending on if they are taking face-to-face classes or enrolled as a Distance Learning student. You must take courses offered within your campus. This error message cannot be overridden without the student switching the campus in which they were admitted to. Please use this link to complete this action. Changing from Distance Learning (online) student to a face-to-face student will result in an increase of tuition and fees.

Some of the more common reasons are: missing or incomplete medical history form; missing SAT or ACT scores; financial aid repayment; Behavioral Health Options program participation; Dean of Students hold; Residence Life hold; Financial Aid holds; Graduate School hold; missing transcripts (Enrollment Services).
