Common Registration Restrictions
Why can't I register online?
When attempting to register online, you may be faced with various restrictions that will prevent you from being able to register. Here are some of the most common reasons why students are restricted from registering for classes:
You may get a message that reads "Registration is permitted you have not meet placement." The placement hold means that you have not satisfied minimum English and/or Math courses, or taken the necessary placement tests for which scores are required. In order to register you must have:
- Valid test scores from test taken or submitted directly to Daytona State College (two year time limit for PERT, SAT, ACT)
- Minimum qualifying scores
- Evaluated* transcripts that shows course work from another school that meets either the pre/co-requisite requirements (grade of "C" or better).
*Evaluated indicates that the transcripts were received by the Daytona State College Records Office and have been processed by a Transcript Evaluator. This process can take a minimum of 3-4 weeks from time of receipt. If your transcripts have not been received and/or evaluated and entered into your record, you will need to request an override from an Academic Advisor. Dependent upon the transfer institution and course, this may or may not be approved. You are encouraged to determine your status early so that you can resolve any restrictions.
Pre-Requisite, Co-Requisite, Concurrent Requisite
- If you have transfer courses from another institution, but it hasn't been officially evaluated and entered into your record, you will get a message indicating that you need a pre/co-requisite when you attempt to register. Until the official evaluation is completed, you will need to request a manual override to register with an Academic Advisor to determine if you have the pre/co-requisite required for that class. The override may or may not be approve dependent upon the transfer institution and course. It may first need to be evaluated by the Records Office who process transfer evaluations.
- If you have do not have transfer course work, you may be trying to register for a class that has a pre/co-requisite such as Math, English, or a prior level course (such as Drawing I being a pre-requisite for Drawing II). Please see the Course Search link for specific class details.
College Preparatory Courses (PREP)
The State has regulations related to requirements if you place into college preparatory or 'prep' math and English courses (MAT0018, MAT0028, ENC0025, and REA0017). For non-exempt students, these are specific regulations that cannot be overridden. For specifics related to these policies, please see College Preparatory Course Information.
Faculty Consent/Permission Required
Certain courses or sections of courses are restricted to only students in that major or only to students who have permission from the faculty member or chairperson. If so, you should determine the faculty member's name and look him/her up by selecting the Employee Search option. You will need to get a phone number or email to reach them to discuss taken the class. If you cannot locate the faculty member you can contact the chairperson for permission.
