Class permission

Some classes may require permission from an instructor or department before you can register. You may need permission if:

  • You have not completed course prerequisites.
  • Your completed prerequisites are transfer courses.
  • You want to register for a closed class or a class that has reserved seats.
  • You want to register during the time period when permission is required.

Request permission

Contact the class instructor to find out if you are eligible for a permission number. If the instructor gives you a permission number, enter it in the Shopping Cart when you register (see step-by-step instructions).

Please note:

If you are on a waitlist and receive a permission number for the class, cancel the waitlist request and then register using the permission number.

If you have a transfer course that fulfills a prerequisite and seats are available in the class, the instructor will automatically grant a permission number.
