Permit Required Registration

On certain occasions a permit may be required for a student to register for a class. Permits are requested by the student through myACCESS and approved or issued by the instructor. 

How to Request a Permit

Types of Permits

Audit

The student will register first as a graded class. Next, the student must request a permit from the instructor to change to Audit, and complete the Audit Enrollment Change Request form. This change cannot be made after midterm and it cannot be reversed after it has been made. Changing to audit will result in an additional fee per credit hour. Visit the Tuition and Fees page for cost to Audit. Read more about Audits

  • Permit expiration: Midterm of the class 

Enroll late

Students may request a permit from the instructor to enroll in a class after the class has already begun. Students may not be enrolled after midterm unless they were previously enrolled in the class and are obtaining re-entry after being dropped. If the class becomes FULL before the student enrolls, the student will need also need to request a permit to Overload the class. A $10 late fee will be assessed for each class added with an Enroll late permit.

  • Permit expiration: 3-business days after issued

Overload Full Class

Overload permits can be requested after the waitlist expires (waitlist expires after the first day of class). If permitted after class begins, the $10 Enroll late permit and fee applies. Note: if the student is first on the waitlist, they may email the instructor directly to request a manual e-permit before class begins (while the waitlist is still active).

  • Permit expiration: 1-business day after issued; if issued with a permit to enroll late the 3-business day expiration will apply. 

Petition or Instructor Consent Required

Students must request a permit from the instructor to enroll in classes requiring “Instructor Consent” or “Granted Petition” to enroll. This is not a Prerequisite Override. If permitted after class begins, the $10 Enroll late permit and fee applies.

  • Permit expiration: Expires end of term; if issued with a permit to enroll late the 3-business day expiration will apply.

Prerequisite​ Override

If a student wishes to enroll in a class but unmet prerequisites are preventing registration, they may request permission from the instructor to enroll if “or Consent of Instructor” is indicated following the list of prerequisites in the course details. If permitted after class begins, the $10 Enroll late permit and fee applies.

  • Permit expiration: Expires end of term; if issued with a permit to enroll late the 3-business day expiration will apply.
