Permission Numbers

COVID-19 Update: CBAPP Advising Has Gone Virtual

For the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester and until further notice, we will remain open virtually to serve all your permission number request needs.

During the Registration Period

Students may be unable to register for a class if the prerequisites have not been met and/or if departmental consent is required.  Only if a student has met all the prerequisites and still cannot register for a course during the registration period, the student should then request a Permission Number (PN).

Permission Numbers do not override the enrollment limit for classes. If the class is full by the time you receive a PN, you may select another class (and obtain another PN) or join the waitlist for the class using the PN. Use the Class Number and the Permission Number to add the class. Permission Numbers expire on the last day of registration. PNs can only be used once. Each department closely monitors the distribution of PNs.

Request a Permission Number by Email

CBAPP students must request Permission Numbers via email. Send an email from your toroMail with the required information as stated below. Failure to submit all required information will void the request. Depending on the number of requests, students can expect to wait 5-8 business days for a response. Please do not send multiple emails.
