The Process

  • If you feel it is appropriate to grant a student one of the above permissions, you will need to email your department assistant the name of the student, the course code, CRN and the type of permission you are granting.
  • The department admin will apply your permission online to the student’s account.
  • The student will then receive an email indicating online permission has been granted, and will be responsible for registering him or herself in the course online.

Note: The Faculty’s/Department Chair’s role in the permission granting process does not change once the semester begins. You will still only need to email your permission to your department’s assistant.
