ROR Procedures

The Farmer School of Business uses the Registration Override Request (ROR) application. Students will access ROR from the Course List for all FSB courses.

  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 request to be added to.
  4. Select Submit Registration Override Request.
    • Rank the sections you are willing to accept (in order of preference). Note: It is encouraged to be flexible and accept other courses. This allows you the best chance of receiving an ROR.
    • 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 and ROR FAQ

Your registration time ticket must be open to submit a Registration Override Request. Please note that ROR will override time conflicts. You must check your BannerWeb schedule for time conflicts and resolve them by dropping courses. 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.

To check the status of your request at any time, log in to the Course List and click 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).

Departmental Notes

All force add decisions are made by the departments via the force add process; individual faculty do not make force add decisions.

  • Accountancy: Students should not submit force add requests for section changes. 
  • Economics: Force adds will not be considered for any course in which there is an open section in that course that is compatible with the student's schedule unless there are verifiable extenuating circumstances.  The Economics Department will not consider force-add requests for section changes.
  • Entrepreneurship: Students MUST attend the first day of class in any course for which they are submitting a force add request. 
  • Finance & Business Legal Studies: Students should not submit force add requests for section changes. 
  • Information Systems & Analytics: Students should not submit force add requests for section changes.
  • Management: The Management Department does not process section changes; if you already have a section of a course, you can attempt to force add a different section, but you must drop the one you're in immediately after accepting a new section. If you do not drop the original section, you cannot be added to the new section.
  • Marketing: It is expected that requests from only the following students will be accommodated:
    • December 2021 degree candidates for whom a course is required;
    • Students needing courses for DECLARED minors or thematic sequences;
    • Other students for whom marketing courses are required for their declared programs;
    • Section changes are only approved for compelling course conflicts.
  • CSE is not a business department; however, CSE 148 requests may also be submitted via the Registration Override Request (ROR) system.
