Special Permission Number

DESCRIPTION: This system processes requests from students seeking to register for closed or restricted courses. Departments can designate which courses and sections are made available to students, who then select their desired sections in rank-preference order. The system can suggest whether or how to assign students to sections based on their selections, limiting factors such as classroom capacity and stop point, and a weighted ranking score based on factors the department can set. Students are notified of their decision via email. Departments can include the SPN in the email or have the student log in to retrieve it; if the student does not retrieve the SPN within a specified deadline, it can be rescinded.
