Instructors can view and create class permission numbers in the Student Administration System.

Every term, permission numbers are created in batch by the Registrar’s Office. Permission numbers are used for instructor consent classes, over-enrollment and overriding requisites. Use this procedure to view existing permission numbers or to manually generate additional permission numbers when they are needed, for example, when a new section of a class is added after the batch process has been run, or when all existing permission numbers have been issued. You can also use this page to customize which requirements a permission number will override.

  • Both instructors and administrative users with appropriate user security will be able to view and create permission numbers.
  • Class permission numbers can override:

    • Closed Class: Allows a student to over enroll in a full course or take a reserve capacity seat.
    • Requisites Not Met: Allows a student who does not meet the prerequisites or who has a credit restriction due to a previously taken course to register.
    • Consent Required: Allows a student to enroll in a course that requires permission.

To obtain permission numbers for a class, 

  1. Click the NavBar icon in the top right-hand corner. 

2. Click the Navigator button from the menu. 

3. Click the Self Service tab.

5. Click the Grade Roster tab.  

6. Click the My Schedule tab to display the My Schedule view.

7. From the My Schedule view, click the Permission Number icon to the left of each class to view the permission numbers for that class.  Because permission numbers are section specific, be sure to select the correct section for your course.

8. The Class Permission Nbrs page will display within the browser. 

9. Provide unused permission numbers (as needed) to students seeking instructor consent, to override requisites, or to over-enroll in your course.

If you allow over-enrollment in your class, you should ensure that you do not exceed the seating capacity of the classroom.

10. To indicate you have issued a permission number to a student, click the 
Issued checkbox next to that permission number. After saving, your User ID appears in the Issued By field and today's date appears in the Issued Date field.

The Issued checkbox assists in avoiding you and/or an administrative user issuing the same permission number to more than one student.

11. From the Permission tab, you can customize which requirements a permission number will override by selecting or deselecting the appropriate checkboxes if desired.

12. To delete a permission number, click the minus sign

13. Click the Comments tab if you wish to add notes regarding a specific permission number.

14. If you wish to generate more permission numbers, enter the number of permission numbers desired into the Assign More Permissions field.

15. Click the Generate button to generate additional permission numbers. Instructors may also request additional permission numbers by telephoning the Registrar at (860) 486-3331. Law School instructors may telephone (860) 570-5142
