ROR (Force Add) Procedures

Departments within the College of Arts & Science use both the Registration Override Request (ROR) application and Banner Waitlists. Students can access the ROR system from the Course List.

  1. Log in to the Course List (top right-hand corner of page) using your unique ID and myMiami password.
  2. Determine if the course is part of the ROR system, by selecting the ? following Registration Override Request Instructions (upper left corner).
  3. Search for the course you want to force-add.
  4. Select Submit Registration Override Request.
    • Rank the sections you are willing to accept (in order of preference).
    • Provide a reason for the request including your graduation month and year, when you completed the prerequisite course(s), extenuating circumstances, other courses requested, and additional information that may be helpful for the department to know about your request.
  5. Select Submit.
    • You will receive a confirmation email that the request was received.

For further assistance with ROR procedures, please see the ROR Student Guide.

Things to note as you submit a ROR:

  • Your registration time ticket must be open to submit a Registration Override Request.
  • Please note that the ROR system will override time conflicts. You must check your BannerWeb schedule for time conflicts and resolve them by dropping courses that overlap with the course you have been added to.
  • If you are registering for more than 20 hours, excess hours must be pre-approved. Students are limited to 17 hours during the initial registration period. In the spring semester, excess hours will not be approved until July after first-year orientation has taken place.

To check the status of your request at any time, log in to the Course List and select Requests. Please be patient, do not call or email the department.

  • Until your request is reviewed and acted upon, it will remain in a pending status. You may edit or delete pending requests until the request submission deadline.
  • You will receive an email notification whenever actions are taken on your request (submission, editing, deletion, approval, or denial).

RORs and Bannerweb Waitlists

Some departments will be using both ROR and Banner Waitlist. RORs cannot be submitted for courses with an active Waitlist; instead, the ROR system will display a message to join a waitlist on BannerWeb.

The One Stop website has extensive information about the Bannerweb Waitlist System, including a step-by-step walk-through for how you can add yourself to a waitlist for a specific course.
