Permission Number Application System

Please read and follow the instructions on the permission code form carefully. Permission code requests that are incomplete or completed inaccurately will be denied which will put you further down on the request/waiting list.

A permission code is a number used to override an enrollment restriction on a course. This number is issued by the school or department offering the course.

If a student is authorized to override the enrollment restrictions on a course, they may request a permission code. In order to override the enrollment restriction, the student must manually input the permission code into PeopleSoft during the point of enrollment. For instructions on how to enroll into a course and where to input the permission code during the point of enrollment, please watch this video provided by the University Registrar’s Office.

Please note that the following permission code requests will automatically be denied:

  • To override the seat limit of a course, i.e., a closed class
  • To override a seat reserve on a class
  • To skip a waitlist
