  2. Obtain approval signature(s) of instructor(s) for any permission (P) courses. Independent study, nontraditional, thesis/essay, research or internship courses developed by the student also require preapproval from the instructor who will supervise and grade the coursework. If you are not on campus during registration, contact the instructor to gain approval to enroll before listing any permission (P) course on your Course Registration Form. Upon gaining the instructor’s approval, write the instructor’s name, class hours and number of credits in the appropriate columns on the card. Enrollment in permission courses will be verified by the instructor upon receipt of the class roster.

The registrar’s office will submit the form to your academic dean for enrollment permission.
