Resolutions for common problems

  • Message in NOVO "Administrative staff are reviewing your registration records at this time. Please try again later.": To resolve this, please make sure you do not have any other instances of your registration record open and try again. If you continue to receive this message and you only have one instance open, please contact the Registrar's Office immediately and we can fix this issue.
  • Message "Invalid username/password" or "404 error": It appears that you are experiencing a timeout issue related to OKTA authentication. To resolve this, please open an incognito/private window (ctrl-shift N in Chrome; ctrl-shift P in Firefox and IE; shift-command N in Safari) (Mac - Command-shift N); and try again.
  • Message in PATH "Your cart could not be updated, please try again.  Error: Request did not complete successfully.  Please try again.": To resolve this issue, please make sure you are connected to the EDUROAM wifi network instead of the ND-Guest network when on Notre Dame's main campus.
