Course Search & Enroll - "Instructor consent or department permission is required" Error
This document explains the meaning of the "Instructor consent or department permission is required" error message and how it can be resolved
What it means:
In addition to requisites, some classes have a special process that allows the instructor to approve who takes the class. Common examples are Independent Study and music performance classes.
Other classes will have enrollment determined by the department offering the class. Once the term begins, there are deadlines after which students need to get the department’s permission to add a class.
What to do:
Contact the appropriate instructor or department to request permission to enroll, and include your campus ID number. You may be asked for more information about your qualifications and interest in the class.
If the instructor or department approves you for the class, they will create as special permission for you in the enrollment system.
You still need to enroll in the class! Go to Course Search & Enroll or Student Center to enroll. Get in touch with the instructor or department who gave the permission if you still have problems enrolling in the class.
