Permission Numbers

What are permission numbers (add codes)?

Permission numbers are needed to get into courses that have restricted enrollment. There are some specific reasons why you may need permission numbers:

  • Your final official transcripts with grades for course prerequisites are not yet in Oasis.
  • The department has placed "instructor consent" or "department consent" on a course.
  • A faculty member has given you approval to enroll in a course during the 2nd week of the semester. 

How do I request a permission number?

Find the course subject from the list below, and email the corresponding person/department to request a permission number. They will typically respond within 1-2 business days. All email prefixes listed below end with "".

Make sure you include this information in your email:

  • Your name, student ID#, major, and the class number and section (ex. HCOM 312-01; "01" is the section number).
