4. Validate Your Class Schedule Before Registration

  1. Validating your selected classes allows you to review and resolve any potential conflicts or restrictions before your registration appointment.
  2. Class selections that are in Waitlists can also be validated.
  3. To learn how to validate your selected class schedule, review the Validating Handout (PDF)

5. Register for Classes With Permission Numbers

  1. On or after your Registration Appointment, enroll the classes in your Shopping Cart.
  2. When students need to register for a class that requires an instructor or department consent,  or to override the waitlist to a closed class, they must submit a request for a Permission Number online. Prior to submitting the request for a permission number, the students must also add their names to the waitlist for the closed class:

    Login to: Request Permission Number 

  3. When requests are approved, students will receive an email with the Permission Number from the approving academic department on their Chapman University email.
  4. To learn how to register a course with a Permission Number, link to the guide to Using A Permission Number.
  5. To validate a class with a Permission Number, review the Permission Number Guide (PDF).
  6. If you have already added the course to your Shopping Cart and then received the Permission Number for it afterwards, you will need to DROP the course from the shopping cart first. Then, RE-ADD the class to the shopping cart using the permission number, and proceed to "Finish Enrolling" the class.

6. Manage Your Waitlist

  1. If you are at the top of the waitlist for a class, and a seat becomes available, you will be automatically enrolled in the class, provided you validated the class.
    • The class validation would have confirmed that you did not have any holds that would have prevented your registration.
    • The class validation would have confirmed the meeting days and times of the waitlisted class did not conflict with any of already enrolled classes.
    • Automatic registration by the Waitlist Process will send students an email notification of successful enrollment to the waitlisted class.
  2. At the START of each term, the waitlists will STOP processing requests automatically. Remaining students on waitlists will need to obtain a Permission Number to enroll in closed or waitlisted classes. To request a Permission Number online,

    Login to: Request Permission Number 

  3. When requests are approved, students will receive an email with the Permission Number from the approving academic department on their Chapman University email.
  4. To register a course with a Permission Number, link to the guide: Using A Permission Number.
  5. To validate a class using a permission number, review the guide: Validating a class with a Permission Number (PDF).
  6. To drop a class only if you can get into a waitlisted class, use the SWAP function in registration. The SWAP feature allows students to replace one class with another, but stops the add-drop process if the waitlisted class could not be added successfully. To learn how to use the SWAP function, review the SWAP How-To Handout (PDF).
  7. To learn more on waitlists, link to the Registration Waitlists FAQs at chapman.edu/waitlists.
