Grant/Deny Waivers Using SRWS/SRQW in Colleague

Modified on: Thu, May 13, 2021 8:52 AM

Use the Student Requisite Waivers Summary (SRWS) and the Student’s Requisite Waiver (SRQW) forms to grant waivers for the requisites of a course before a student tries to register for the course. 

 

Requisite waivers can be created either at the course or section level, similar to how requites are defined. Granting a waiver before registration allows a student to register for a class even if they do not meet the requisites without causing errors or warning during registration. During registration Colleague checks to see if the student has an eligible waiver. If a waiver exists that waives all the unmet requisites, then the student is registered for the section. If the waiver has been denied, revoked, or does not exist, the student needs an override to register for the section         

 

NOTE:   Waivers can be viewed in my.forsythtech.edu, but they cannot be edited there.

 

Waiver Duration: 

  • You can create a course or section waiver so it applies only to a specific term or a course waiver for a specified time frame that you define. For example, you could create a course waiver that could be good for an entire year. 
  • You cannot create a waiver with both a term and a date range. 
  • If you are creating waivers using a date range instead of a term the following is important to note to ensure that the registration process correctly associates the waiver with the student's registration.   
    1. The start date of the section for which the student is registering must fall within the waiver date range.
    2. The waiver date range does not have to match the dates for the term for the waiver to be associated with the student's registration.  
    3. If the start date of the section is outside of the waiver date range then the waiver does not apply to the registration.

Section Waiver:

Section if the requisites are defined at the section level or if the waiver can be used only for a particular section of the course. 



  • In the Reason and Comments fields, enter information about why the student is being granted the waiver. 
  • Select the requisites you want to waive using one of the following options:

Course Waiver:

Select Course if the requisites you want to waive are defined at the course level and the waiver can be used for any sections offered for the course.
