After you enter your CRNs and click on the ‘Submit’ button, the Banner data system will attempt to fill your request. Courses for which you are successfully registered will be listed on your screen. You may also receive one or more error messages.

When encountering a registration error always check the CRN to make sure it wasn’t entered incorrectly. Do not leave the first block of the “add classes worksheet” blank and enter a CRN into a subsequent block. This will result in an error message for a valid CRN.

Possible Errors:

"You have no Registration Time Ticket..."
Standard sessions at Lawrence are terms, not semesters. Be sure you have selected the correct session in item (1) of the Register for Classes menu.
