Permission Numbers

Permission numbers are used in the registration process to allow faculty to grant permission for students to enroll when the student does not meet a prerequisite, to override a class capacity, or when a class requires permission. Permission numbers are also required during the second week of classes for all undergraduate courses below the 500 level.

Important:

  • Students must contact the instructor of record, or the department, to obtain a permission number.
  • Permission numbers are unique to each section of a class and cannot be used interchangeably for cross-listed sections.
  • Permission numbers may be used by only one student.
  • Permission numbers are good for only one enrollment transaction and cannot be used multiple times.
