How to Use a Permission Number in Student Center
What is a Permission Number?
Permission Numbers, commonly referred to as a PIN, are given out by an instructor or a department coordinator. The permission number can be used when performing an enrollment action through your Student Center. Permission Numbers can override a closed class, department/instructor consent. Permission Numbers do not override time conflicts or the maximum credit hour limit.
For our example, we are requesting enrollment in ART 1601 (Class Number: 19193). Per the roster, the class requires instructor permission to enroll, indicated by hovering over the padlock.
