Common Registration Errors

The most common registration errors that require an OVERRIDE are:

Pre-Req/Test Score Error: Requires an override from the course INSTRUCTOR if you do NOT meet the prerequisites.

All students requesting a pre-requisite override for a UNM course (that allows overrides) because they are either (1) currently enrolled in the pre-requisite course at another institution or (2) transferring credit for the complete pre-requisite from another institution must complete a General Pre-Requisite Override Request form AFTER MEETING with an advisor and providing physical documentation, such as a copy of a transcript and/or a schedule showing the IN Progress course to the advisor completing the form.

If you are unsure of the pre-requisites or test scores required for a course, you can find them when you search by subject at

Maximum Hours Exceeded: Requires an OVERLOAD REQUEST from your major advisor. If your GPA is 3.0 or higher, you can e-mail your advisor the request. If your GPA is below 3.0 or you are a first-time freshman without a GPA from UNM, you must fill out an Overload Request Form and bring it to The Arts & Sciences Advisement Center for a coordinator’s approval.  Please be aware that for additional credit hours above 18, there is a per-credit hour tuition charge. 

Duplicate Course: A duplicate course error arises when two courses are taken with the same course number even if the section is different (such as a special topics course).  Sign up for one of the courses and then request from the INSTRUCTOR of the second course an “Override,” which they can do from their LoboWeb by selecting the correct error message from the dropdown menu.

Time Conflict: This error appears if two courses overlap even slightly and it must be overridden by the course INSTRUCTOR.
