Registration, Waitlists, and Permission Number Policies


  • Registration for BOTH the first and second seven week session open at the same time for students.
  • We highly recommend that students register for both sessions as soon as registration opens as space is limited.
  • Registration dates can be found on our academic calendars.


  • Putting yourself on a waitlist does not guarantee that you will get a seat in the class.
  • Our office usually recommends that students register for a back-up class if on a waitlist. Please email us at if you are curious what other classes are open for you.
  • The registrar’s office has a helpful Waitlist FAQ.

Permission Numbers

  • The granting of permission numbers is up to each department.
  • Our department does not grant permission numbers so that we can be as equitable to all students as possible since we have limited seats.
  • We also do not grant permission numbers for late starts as classes are condensed and of high rigor.
