Add a Class Using a Permission Number

This is a tutorial only. No log in is required.

Introduction

Use a Permission Number to:

  1. add or wait list for a restricted class BEFORE the term begins,
  2. add all classes WHEN the second week of fall or spring instruction begins (see exact dates in the Semester Bulletin), and
  3. add year-round summer cohort courses at all times.

If the class you want to add requires concurrent enrollment in a second class (e.g., corequisite lecture and lab), obtain a permission number for each class before you begin your enrollment transaction.

Permission numbers can be re-used until:

  1. your enrollment in the class is successful,
  2. the Late Registration/Schedule Adjustment Period ends, or
  3. the permission number expires as specified by the department / instructor.
