GRADUATE STUDENT COURSES
Click on the + to open the section.
Special permission numbers are required for closed courses if space is available. For closed courses, the numbers can only be released to a student once they have received written approval to register from the professor teaching the class (email approval will suffice). That needs to be communicated to Kathy Lopez, email@example.com in order to obtain the graduate course special permission number.
UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT COURSES
Click on the + to open the section.
NOTICE: Matriculating undergraduates can request special permission for open online and closed in-class sections of fall 2017 courses only through the automated system described below. Students should submit requests for two or more sections of a course for best outcome. If you receive an email informing you that your request has been granted, you have 24 hours to log into the system to retrieve the number and utilize it.
There are three kinds of special requests students may need to submit to the Bloustein School to gain admittance to certain courses.
- Admission to open online major core courses is by permission of the department.
- Admission to closed in-class sections of courses require a special permission number.
- Admission to courses for which the prerequisites have been filled in a different method than what is posted on the scheduling system may require a prerequisite override. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for these requests.
Please note that faculty DO NOT issue special permission numbers for closed classes.
If you are planning to enroll in the Bloustein Honors Research or Independent Study courses, there is a requisite form that can picked up from the Office of Student and Academic Services located on the first floor of the Bloustein School. The form needs to be completed and submitted to email@example.com prior to receiving a special permission number.
When filling out the form, make sure you give a detailed description of your research project. Requests will be processed as long as the consent form with project summary has been submitted.
A student who is unable to register for a course because he or she lacks the proper prerequisites should not request a special permission number via the system. Under some circumstances, for example, if the student has taken the appropriate prerequisite course(s) at Rutgers or another institution, but webreg is not recognizing the course, then the student should contact the Office of Student and Academic Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Because of the high demand for many of the Bloustein School courses, most class sections are filled early in registration. A student should first attempt to register through the Rutgers Web Registration System. If all sections that the student can take are closed, the student should submit a special permission request. If a number is not granted, the student should monitor the schedule of classes to see if it reopens.
Please note: We generally leave some seats available in the courses to accommodate transfer students. If there is any space remaining once this cohort registers during summer, then we will reopen the course(s) in the special permission system during the first weeks of classes for the fall term.
The school makes a significant effort to accommodate as many students as possible during the registration process, and generally satisfies most of them. Unfortunately, there is often not enough room to grant all requests.
Matriculating undergraduates (current students) should request special permission for admission to open online sections and closed in class sections using the automated special permission system described below.
Non-matriculated undergraduate students (not pursuing a degree program) should request special permission for admission to closed sections by contacting the Office of Student and Academic Services at email@example.com. These requests will be reviewed as they are received.
