Permission Numbers

What are Permission Numbers (PNs)?

During registration, you may be unable to register for classes due to requisites and/or required departmental consent. In the past, we have required a Restricted Registration Exception form from the department to obtain access to these restricted classes. You will now need to obtain a Permission Number (PN) from your department in order to obtain access to restricted classes. Each department will maintain PNs for their restricted classes. These numbers do not, however, override the enrollment limit for classes. If the restricted class is full, you must select another class (and obtain another PN) or you may 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.
