  • Each Course Permission request will be reviewed by the advisors in the Student Success Center.
  • Then your request will be sent electronically to the department and instructor of the course for review.
  • You will be notified via email as to whether or not permission has been granted.
  • Course permission requests are for undergraduate business courses only.
