Permission Numbers

If the system does not allow you to register based on prerequisites and/or being in a different major, please contact the instructor for advising. The instructor's email address is in the Class Details, Notes section on the Search for Classes. If you are approved, you’ll be given a Permission Number which you’ll use to add the class. Permission numbers expire on the last day to add for each session. For Winter Session it is January 5, 2024.

Late Registration

After January 5, 2024, a Late Add Petition with instructor and department signatures is required.


We do not recommend enrolling for a class after it begins without the consent of the instructor. If you should enroll and pay for a class after it begins without permission from the instructor, and upon attending the class, the instructor does not allow you to remain in the class, or you are unable to catch up on missed class meetings, or find the remainder of the class not useful, you will be subject to the refund deadlines and policies at the time of the drop.
