PERMISSION CODE REQUEST & REGISTRATION ISSUES

If you are unable to register for a math class without a permission code, review the following information to determine what steps you need to take. The Math Department enforces prerequisites for all math courses from Calculus II through the 5000 level and does not make exceptions to prerequisites. All prerequisite courses must be passed with at least a straight C or better. To review the prerequisites for the math course you want to take, visit the Math course descriptions in the General Catalog.
