 Shortcut to this page: www.chapman.edu/permission-numbers 

WHEN students need to register for a class that requires:

  • instructor or department consent
  • request to override the waitlist to a closed class
  • request to override course requisites

STUDENTS MAY REGISTER IF GRANTED A PERMISSION NUMBER.

To request a Permission Number, students must complete and submit the online request form below. Before submitting the request, students should add their names to the course' waitlist through the StudentCenter's Shopping Cart. Submitting a request does not guarantee approval.

CLICK ON THE PERMISSION NUMBER ONLINE REQUEST link below and Log in with your Chapman credentials. When the Permission Number Request form opens, click on “Create New”. The form will come up with your basic student information. Enter the class information (semester, subject, class number, and section), click on the box with the reason approval is needed, and enter the reason you want to add the class. With the required fields filled-in, click on the “Create” button to submit the request.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I RECEIVE THE PERMISSION NUMBER?

  • The permission number system does NOT automatically enroll students in the class. It is the student’s responsibility to register with the permission number once it is provided. Students register for classes online through the StudentCenter.
  • If you have already added the course to your shopping cart and received the Permission Number for it afterwards, drop your name from the waitlist to remove the course from the shopping cart. Then, re-add the class to the shopping cart, this time, with the Permission Number, and proceed to register.
  • When you receive your Permission Number, learn how to use it from the Permission Number Guide

WHO REVIEWS AND GRANTS PERMISSION NUMBERS?

  • Prior to the start of the term, the request will be sent to the Department Chair/Program Director for approval.
  • During the first two weeks of the Fall and Spring terms, the request will go to the Instructor first and then the Department Chair/Program Director for approval.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PERMISSION NUMBER IS REVIEWED?

  • If the request is denied, an email will automatically be sent to the student's Chapman University email along with a reason for the denial.
  • If the request is approved, the department will generate a permission number and an email will be sent to the student's Chapman University email.

WHEN WILL I HEAR ABOUT THE STATUS OF MY PERMISSION NUMBER REQUEST?

  • Some departments may not review requests until after the end of a registration period or until the start of the term.
  • Permission Numbers are manually generated during regular business hours, Monday - Friday, 8:00AM - 5:00PM, PST. During registration periods, permission number requests may not be processed until that registration period is completed.
