Registration Form

From pre-registration through the first week of the term students may add on-line via web registration (Webster). During the second through the fourth weeks of the term, student may add classes at the discretion of the instructor, who must provide a signature on a Registration Form. Thereafter, only the College Dean may approve exceptions. Requests for exceptions may be brought to the Deans only upon instructor’s prior approval of the request.

What do I do if I have a hold?

  • Money hold – Contact Student Accounts or 541-962-3590
  • All other holds contact your Adviser (you can find your adviser using your Webster Account “View Student Information”)

Common registration errors and what to do:

Suppressed line number error: means the course requires instructor approval to register.

In order to register for a class that is suppressed you will need to contact the instructor via email and request permission to join the class. The instructor (if approves) will give you an ‘override’ in the system that will allow you to then register yourself for the course.

Alternatively your email permission to enter the course from the instructor can be forwarded to along with the completed online fillable registration form. Send the email from your EOU email account, and no physical signature will be required on the registration form. Upon receipt, our office will manually add you to the class roster.

Restriction error: means there is something restricting you from registering for the class.

Level restriction – the student level freshman, sophomore, junior, senior or graduate.
Attribute restriction – some online classes require students to be designated online students to register.
Field of study restriction – program you are getting your degree in.

If you have a restriction error you will need to contact the instructor and receive approval from them for an ‘override’ so you can register yourself for the class.

 Closed Section error: means the class is full (see below)

  • Some classes that are full/closed have wait-listing capabilities, click here to see information on wait-listing and the wait-listed courses. If a closed course is not wait-listed then you need to send an email to the instructor requesting approval to join the class.
  • For non wait-list courses you need to complete and attach the online fill-able registration form to this request. Send the email from your EOU email account and no physical signature will be required.
  • When the instructor approves, he/she should forward all registration documents (registration form and instructor permission email) to the Dean of the college for approval (college deans listed below).
  • The Dean will then send all documents to the Registrar’s office for processing.
  • **NOTE** if a course is wait-listed you will ONLY go on the wait-list if you follow these steps, you will not be registered for the course.

Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading

The purpose of the S/U option is to encourage you to take courses outside your major program without fear of the grade earned affecting your GPA.  The S/U grading option must be elected by the second Friday of the term. To elect the S/U option, the student must file the request form with the Registrar’s Office. Of the 180 term hours required for the bachelor’s degree, you may elect up to 36 for S/U (courses offered only on an S/U basis are not included in the 36-hour limit).

The grade of S indicates a grade comparable to a grade of C- or better. An S/U grade may be elected for any course except those used to meet specific program requirements, unless it is allowed by the academic college offering the course. If a required course is offered only on an S/U basis, it may be counted in the major program. If students have questions regarding which courses can be taken S/U, they should see their faculty adviser

If you are repeating a course to raise a grade, a grade of “U” is not considered to be a higher grade than a
“D” or “F”.
