Class Permission Requests

Students who wish to add a class—but are receiving an error message—may use the Class Permissions Procedures listed on this page to override the error. Permissions will override a closed class, requisites not met, department consent required, instructor consent required, and late adds.

Students may be denied initial registration into a class due to course requirements or deadlines. Registration for such classes require an exception/permission to be processed. These permissions are processed by department/college/advising staff to allow students to register for classes via Catalyst.

The procedures below will work for the following permission requests:

  • Closed Class (class is full)
  • Requisites Not Met
  • Department Consent Required
  • Instructor Consent Required
  • Late Adds (error message reads "This class requires permission to enroll. This class is scheduled in a session where permission is now required to enroll.")

Please note that any Add/Drop Forms for these above transactions that are received by the Office of the Registrar will be returned.

Instructions for obtaining permissions are found in the drop–down menus below. When making your request, please specify the permission(s) that you need.

You will find the offering college in the Schedule of Classes, between the room and instructor information.

If you have clicked on the class or section hyperlinks, you will find the Offer Number (Offer Nbr) in the Class Details section, directly under the Course ID on the right.
