Special Permission Numbers:

A Special Permission Number (SPN) is a unique code given by the department that allows students to register for a closed course. Please note that applying for an SPN DOES NOT mean that you are guaranteed to receive one. This system is only available during the special permission periods listed below. Please do NOT email instructors. Please follow the procedure below to request SPNs for full classes: 

 

You may request an SPN for the following reasons: 

  • The class is full: We will put your name on the WAITING LIST, with priority given to the students in the major who meet the pre-requisites AND need the course for a timely graduation.
  • The course requires it: as stated on University Schedule of Classes

 

Do NOT request an SPN: 

  • before the section fills up. The numbers are not given by first come first serve. They are distributed by rounds
  • if other sections are open
  • if you do not meet the course pre-requisites
  • if you are a non-major and the course has not been opened to non-majors yet
  • for sections that do NOT officially appear on WebReg
  • if the course is not listed on the SPN waitlist site.

Prerequisite Overrides:

A student who is unable to register for a course because they lack the proper prerequisites should NOT request a special permission number. Under some circumstances – for example, if the student has taken appropriate prerequisite courses outside of Rutgers, and these are not yet credited to their Rutgers transcript, that would require a prerequisite override.
