Student Frequently Asked Questions

Self-Service FAQs and Instructions for Students

How are grades entered in Self-Service

Download the instructions for how to enter grades using Self-Service.

How will courses that require department consent be handled?

As with Colleague, required consent for a course (or a section) requires approval. Department staff or advisors will enter the permit in Banner Forms on the SFASRPO screen (after receiving appropriate departmental permission).

How do I make sure that students register for a section at the correct site?

In Self-Service (registration), students should search for the university and location that is appropriate for them. 


Will capacity be set for section sizes?

As with Colleague, departments establish the section caps on the semester sections draft. Banner will technologically enforce those caps.

Will I be able to place a hold on registration?

As with Colleague, only administrative departments assign registration restricting holds. 

Will students be able to register if a hold is placed?

Advisors must remove advising holds before a student can register. Students must resolve any registration restricting holds prior to registering.


When will students be able to register?

Current students can register on the first day of their time ticket (priority registration) and continue registration until the last date of add/drop. Check the academic calendar for early registration dates.

How do advisors remove holds?

On Self-Service, find the advisee’s student profile card and look in the upper right section.

How do we register/support distance students?

Self-Service registration is web-based and mobile-friendly, allowing students to search/register for classes anytime and anywhere on their device of choice. (Registration permitted after their time ticket date and advisor hold has been removed.)

Students with technical concerns can contact the USD HelpDesk at 605-677-5028.

Is there online/zoom training for students?

University CBT’s are created for students and can be found at the videos above.

Once a student permit/override is recorded in SFASRPO, can it be removed? (ie. student changed mind, student didn’t register in required amount of time)

Yes – by using the delete function in Banner SFASRPO screen.
