How do students use a permission number?

Before the first day of classes, a nightly process runs to automatically enroll students from the WaitList. After classes begin, the class will remain closed and you will need to attend the first class meeting to get a permission number or a signed add form from the instructor. If the instructor provides you with a permission number, go to your Student Center and add the class using the permission number. Make sure to drop yourself from the waitlist before adding the class with the permission number. Dropping a class using the Student Center.

If the instructor signs an Add form in place of a permission number, take the Add form to the Admissions and Records Office on Campus.  Please go to Adding-a-closed-class-with-a-Permission-number for instructions on how to add a class using a permission number.

 

There is only one person on the waitlist so if you just show up to class the first you would most likely have a pretty good chance of getting in. The instructor would give you a permission number and then you could enroll in the class. Waitlists close once classes begin so you cannot get on the waitlist at this point.

“waitlisted” student must first drop themselves from the waitlist and then, use the permission number to enroll in the class. Remember, the class will remain closed and the permission number will override the ‘closed’ class status in order to allow the enrollment.

 

How do students “automatically” enroll in a class from the waitlist?

There is a daily automated process that moves students from the waitlists into a class if a space becomes available.  Students are notified by email when they are enrolled through this automated waitlist process in PeopleSoft.

The auto-enroll process from the waitlist stops a day before the first day of the term (i.e., Sunday, August 20, 2017).

A full class will remain closed as long as there are students in the waitlist.

I have completed the enrollment services and still have the enrollment hold. How do I clear the hold?

If you have completed assessment, orientation and counseling services and there is still a hold on your account then you need to contact the counseling office where you completed the services.
