Searching for a Course by Day and Time

Permission Numbers for Courses: There are many courses in each department that require a permission number for students to enroll.  If a course requires department consent, and the instructor gives you written permission, an authorized administrator in the department the course is offered through will generate and issue you a permission number to be able to use to enroll in the course.  After conducting a class search (don’t forget to uncheck the “view open classes only” box), click on the Select Class tab.  You would then type the permission number into the appropriate box.  If the course is already in your shopping cart, click on the course in your shopping cart to bring up the review page to enter in the permission number.
