Registration Error Messages and Restricted
Course Approval Codes

Error Messages

During your web registration session, error messages inform you of conditions that prevent you from enrolling (adding or dropping) in courses.

To minimize receiving error messages, look for restricted course comments in Schedule of Courses (available in mid-February) course lists and get permission prior to attempting registration online.

Consult course descriptions in the UH Mānoa Catalog to find course prerequisite, co-requisite, or other requirements.

See a list of possible error messages and recommended actions in the table below.

Approval Codes

For some error messages, academic departments, colleges, instructors, or administrative offices may give you permission to register for restricted courses by entering approval override codes into your student records that will permit you to register. They cannot register for you for the course. After you contact the appropriate department or person and the approval code has been entered, register for the course online through MyUH.
