Enrollment Errors - Students will receive an enrollment error in situations that require permission to add a class. If you receive one of the following errors when attempting to add a class, you will need to either choose another class or request permission to add the class. The instructions below outline how to request permission for the various enrollment errors. Review the table carefully as the method for requesting permission to add varies depending upon the error you receive.

If your request is approved, you will then need to enroll yourself in the class through Enroll & Pay. In some cases you may be required to enter a permission number when enrolling. If a permission number is required, it will be emailed to you.
