Special Registration Authorizations

  • Are any of your courses identified in the Schedule of Classes as Instructor or Department Consent required?  If so, you must obtain online authorization from the instructor or the department office to register for consent required courses.

  • If auditing a course or signing up for a credit overload you must obtain approval.  Enrolling in an independent study course also requires electronic authorization from the department.

  • Are you repeating any courses?  Online approval from your advisor and the department chair of the course is required to avoid you being administratively dropped from the course.
