How to Obtain a Special Permission Number

If the course you want to register for is closed, you should:

  1. Register for a different section of the course.
  2. Keep checking the registration website to see if anyone has dropped. 
  3. Attend the first class meeting of the course and ask the instructor for a special permission number.  If there is room in the class, the instructor MAY choose to give you a special permission number. 
  4. Take the special permission number to the Registrar’s Office located in Blumenthal Hall, 3rd floor to enroll in the course.

Please Note:  there is no guarantee that you will be given a special permission number.
