Class permissions are given by departments or faculty for a couple of reasons:

  1. The class/course requires department or instructor consent.
    • Students cannot register for the class without permission.
  2. The class is full.
    • Instructors or departments can determine if the room and other conditions will safely allow for another student to enroll in the class.
  3. Pre-requisites are not met.
    • The instructor or department can determine if a student will be able to successfully complete the class without all of the prerequisites (typically students must show evidence of this).
    • Class Permissions are entered by departments or colleges (they do not register you for the class). Students must self-register within WINS when class permission is given.

Notes:

  • Class permissions are class or section specific - You must register for the class/section that you received permission for (you will not be able to register for other sections, unless they are open and you meet the pre-requisites).
  • The class will still show as full on WINS - the department or instructor has given permission for you to enroll in the class.
  • Students must self-register for the class in WINS.
