Permission Code Guide

A permission code is a four to six digit random number issued by the instructor or department to enroll in a specific class. Permission codes can only be used once, and are required when a class is full, after the open add period has ended (see Academic Calendar here), if there is a time conflict, registering for a class outside your career of study, or when the department has restricted enrollment. The Advising Team does not and cannot give out permission codes. Please see the following for the permission code process:
