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 Graduate Program Student Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to obtain the graduate course special permission number.
UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT COURSES
Click on the + to open the section.
NOTICE: Matriculating undergraduate students can only request special permission numbers for spring 2019 via the automated system described below. Students should submit requests for two or more sections of a course for best outcome. Please do not submit requests for conflicting course sections. If you receive an email informing you that your request has been granted, you have 24 hours to utilize the number.
There are two kinds of special requests students will need to submit to the Bloustein School to gain admittance to certain courses.
- Admission to independent study, honors research, and “majors only” courses (Research Methods, Leadership Seminar, all Internship courses, and Senior Seminar) require special permission numbers. These numbers are not issued for Health Disparities (10:832:212).
- 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 email@example.com for these requests.
Open online courses no longer require a special permission number. Faculty DO NOT issue special permission numbers for closed classes.
Note: For Rutgers New-Brunswick students registering for Health Administration (501) and Public Health (832) courses, please do not enroll in section 80 or 85. These course sections are offered at off-campus locations in Lincroft and Mays Landing, NJ, respectively.
If you are planning to enroll in the Bloustein Honors Research or Independent Study courses, there is a requisite form that can be obtained from the Office of Student and Academic Services. The form needs to be completed and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 signed 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 email@example.com for assistance.
Because of the high demand for many of the Bloustein School courses, most of them 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 monitor the schedule of classes to see if it reopens.
Please note: Special permission numbers are not issued for closed sections (online or in-person). Therefore, they will not be listed in the system. We generally leave some seats available in the major core courses to accommodate transfer students. If there is any space remaining once this cohort registers during summer or winter, then we will reopen the course(s) in the special permission system during the first weeks of classes for the fall or spring 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 “majors only” or special courses (listed above in the General Information section) using the automated special permission system described below. Please view the rounds listed in the below drop down for times that the system opens, closes, and when numbers are issued.
Non-matriculated undergraduate students (not pursuing a degree program) should request special permission for admission to classes by contacting the Office of Student and Academic Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. These requests will be reviewed as they are received.
The automated SPN system will be available for summer registration starting in February 2019.
Note: Special permission numbers are not granted for closed sections of courses.

Who Can Use the Online Special Permission System?
Matriculating undergraduates who wish to get special permission to enter “majors only” or special courses (see General Information tab) offered by the Bloustein School should use the web-based system.
How Do I Login?
Students need to use their NetID and password to access the online special permission system. Students using this system DO NOT need to have their own computer accounts or e-mail addresses. They only need access to the web which is available on all campuses.
Students should submit requests for multiple sections of a course (ranking most preferred first) for best outcome. Please do not submit requests for conflicting course sections. If you receive an email informing you that your request has been granted, you have 24 hours to utilize the number.
