Below, please find important updates about changes, not least from previously paper-based processes, that we want to ensure are clearly messaged as we all move to remote operations.

Registration for Courses that Require Permission

For courses that would require a paper form in the past

(i.e. independent study, directed study, masters projects, masters thesis):

  • Once an agreement has been worked out with the instructor, it is the student's responsibility to initiate the process. [CECS and COB students should work directly with the UG/GR advising office or grad program coordinator.]
  • The student should start with the appropriate form:

NOTE: Forms must be downloaded and saved before completing.

  • The student should complete the student section of the form and forward it to the faculty collaborator. [CECS and COB students should work directly with the UG/GR advising office or grad program coordinator.]  
  • The faculty member should digitally sign the form (type name in the signature field) and forward it for any necessary signatures or approvals per college policy. [For CECS and COB, the UG/GR advising office or grad program coordinator will coordinate signatures.] 
  • Once the form has the requisite signatures, it should be sent to either the advisor or grad program coordinator. [CEHHS students should send to cehhs-oss@umich.edu.]
  • In accordance with their current procedures, the advisor or grad program coordinator will enter the approved individualized course on a Google sheet provided by the Office of the Registrar.
  • NOTE: the Office of the Registrar does NOT need the form. We simply need an entry on the Google sheet.
  • The Office of the Registrar staff will create a class section and assign a CRN for each individualized course. 
  • The advising office or grad program coordinator will enter an electronic override on behalf of the student.
  • The advising office or grad program coordinator will contact the student and provide the CRN.
  • The student will be able to register for the individualized course in Banner, using the CRN and electronic override.

For courses that would require a paper Add & Drop/Authorization form in the past (including co-op)

Students can access a fillable Add & Drop form, complete it, and email it to UMDRegistration@umich.edu. The form must be downloaded to make it fillable. 

If the instructor’s permission is required and granted, the permission can be granted via email to UMDRegistration@umich.edu from the instructor’s @umich email address.
