Permission Number Policy
There are two separate cases when a permission number is granted to a student through the department:
- To overwrite a prerequisite, the student shall email the instructor teaching the class for approval. Upon approval, an email, with the class/section and the student’s name and Bronco ID included, shall be sent by the instructor to email@example.com for a permission number. The permission number will be sent to the instructor who will send it to the student.
- If a student has completed a prerequisite for a class but is denied registration, a copy of the transcript or a screenshot of the student record from Broncodirect shall be sent by the student to the instructor teaching the course as proof for approval. To obtain a permission number, follow the procedure stated above. Note that In-progress courses from other schools are not accepted as proof of prerequisites.
Note: If the student intends to articulate a course taken from another school to be a prerequisite, the student shall first verify if the course is listed in the articulation agreements on the ASSIST website - www.assist.org. If the course is listed, the student shall contact the Student Success Center to file a petition. If the course is not listed, the student shall email the syllabus of the course to be articulated to the Department Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) for approval. Upon approval, the student shall also contact the Student Success Center to file a petition. This process normally takes time and the students are advised to start it as early as possible.
