Special Permission Information - Planner

Granting Special Permission to a student allows registration in a section which they would not normally be eligible to register for due to various reasons.

  • Restrictions - if a section has a restriction that the student does not meet then granting them Special Permission will allow them to register via MyUI.
  • Prerequisites -  if a section has a Prerequisites that the student does not meet then granting them Special Permission will allow them to register via MyUI.  More Information about Prerequisites.
  • Course Level - if a course is a level that the student does not qualify for, then granting them Special Permission will allow them to register via MyUI.

Special Permission can be granted in various ways depending on what is desired by the student or department.

  • Course Level Permission - Granting Course Level Special Permission will allow a student to register in any section of the course.  Course Level Special Permission will override restrictions but no prerequisites.
    • NOTE: If granting Special Permission for an Independent Study (:IND) it must be granted at the course level.
  • Section Level Permission - Granting Section Level Special Permission will allow a student to register only in the selected section. Section Level Special Permission will override both restriction and prerequisites.
  • Prerequisite Permission - Granting Prerequisite Permission will allow a student to register in a course for which they have not met the Prerequisite.  Prerequisite Special Permission will not override restrictions.  More Information about Prerequisites.
