Issuing Class Permissions

Staff and faculty with the appropriate access can assign student-specific permissions which can override career, class capacity, and/or prerequisite requirements to enable a student to enroll in a class.

This guide will go over the process of entering class permissions in CMS.

Permissions are section-specific. A student will only be able to enroll in the section that the permit was issued for and will not be able to add other sections of the class.

Permits do not waive Service Indicators (Holds), time conflicts, or term unit limits. Issuing permissions does not automatically enroll a student in a class. The student must go through the process of adding a class themselves before the permission expires.
