Special Permission Numbers

What are 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. 

Students need to keep in mind that there are no guarantees in obtaining an SPN when you put in a request for one. SPN’s are assigned based on priority, seniority, amount of cumulative credits, and of course, ultimately, availability. The process for applying for a Special Permission Number is very structured and specific—if you do not follow all of the directions, your SPN request will be rejected. Be sure to read any and all information regarding the request process for SPN’s.

The SPN is unique and only for you to use. Any student who gives out their assigned Special Permission Number to another student will be severely penalized, and risks not being assigned any future SPN's.  If you decide not to use your assigned SPN, please contact the department immediately via email to let us know: we will re-assign the SPN to another student who did not previously receive one.

Prerequisite Overrides

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. Under some circumstances – for example, if the student has taken appropriate prerequisite courses elsewhere, and these are not yet credited to his or her Rutgers transcript, that would require a prerequisite override. Please email the advisor if a prerequisite override is needed.
