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.  Credit overload approval is initiated by your advisor or department chair.  Enrolling in an independent study course also requires electronic authorization from the department.

  • Are you repeating any courses? A first repeat of a D, D+, or F does not require approval. If you are repeating a class for a second or third time, or you want to repeat a course you received a first attempt grade of C- or better, you will need approval from your advisor and the department chair of the course you are trying to repeat. Approval is required to avoid you being administratively dropped from the course.
