ADDS REQUIRING PERMITS

CLASSES NEEDING DEPARTMENT CONSENT (Dept Consent/Requisites):

When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that department consent or requisites are required for a class you are trying to register for, Department permission must be granted.  Departments will first check that you meet the requirements for the class before placing the permit onto your records. This may include student level, pre-requisites, co-requisites, GPA, major or classification.  Please submit an online request through the Permission Request link from your Student Center.  View the How To tutorial to learn more.  You may also email the department of the class to request a "permit" to enroll.

CLOSED (FULL) CLASSES: 

When a class reaches its maximum enrollment capacity it is then considered “closed” to other registrants. Permission must be obtained from the instructor and department chair of a closed class to be registered over the max enrollment capacity.   If a class is waitlisted, students will need to add themselves to the waitlist and watch for email confirmation once enrolled.  We recommend that students check their CSUSB email  account daily.  If the class is not waitlisted and permission to enroll by "permit" is granted, register for the class through myCoyote.   Or you may also request permission online through the Permission Request link from your Student Center.  View the How To tutorial to learn more.

NOTE! It is a student's responsibility to add a class to their class schedule by officially registering for that class. 

BE ADVISED:  Instructors cannot “add” a class to your class schedule by adding your name to the class roster!  Official enrollment for a class must be initiated by the student, by following the procedures listed above.  CONFIRM ENROLLMENT BY CHECKING YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE.  If it isn't there, you are not enrolled in the class.

BLACKBOARD:  Access to classes through BlackBoard is not official enrollment in the class.  You MUST check your class schedule to confirm official enrollment.  If you are not enrolled in a class through myCoyote, you must take the steps mentioned above to ensure you are officially enrolled in the class.  

 

ADDRESSING REGISTRATION ERROR MESSAGES

While registering for classes through myCoyote, students may receive an error message indicating the reason the class was not added to your class schedule.  

·         Class Is Full (closed):  Instructor permission is required for all closed classes. If the class is not waitlisted, contact the department of the class to request a “permit” (permission) to enroll.  If permission to enroll is granted, register for the class through myCoyote by the Census deadline placed for each term.  Or you may also request permission online through the Permission Request link from your Student Center.  View the How To tutorial to learn more.  If the class is waitlisted, students will need to wait to obtain permission after the waitlist period ends for the term. 

·         Department or Instructor Consent Required: Department or Instructor permission is required.  When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that department consent is required for a class you are trying to register for, departments or the instructor will first check that you meet the requirements for the class. This may include student level, pre-requisites, co-requisites, GPA, major or classification.  If a "permit" is granted, register for the class through myCoyote by the Census deadline placed for each term.  Or you may also request permission online through the Permission Request link from your Student Center.  View the How To tutorial to learn more.  If the class is waitlisted, students will need to wait to obtain permission after the waitlist period ends for the term.   

·         Requisites Not Met: When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that requisites are required for a class you are trying to register for, this could be for various reasons.  Most upper division courses require junior standing while other courses may require a pre-requisite be completed.  If you feel you have met the requisites indicated, please contact the department of the class for a "permit" to enroll.  Departments will first check that you meet the requirements for the class before placing the permit onto your records. This may include student level, pre-requisites, co-requisites, GPA, major or classification.  If a "permit" is granted, register for the class through myCoyote by the Census deadline placed for each term.  Or you may also request permission online through the Permission Request link from your Student Center.  View the How To tutorial to learn more.  If the class is waitlisted, students will need to wait to obtain permission after the waitlist period ends for the term.   

·         Time Conflict: When the registration system (myCoyote) informs a student that a time conflict exists with another class the student is already enrolled in, then a request for a Simultaneous Enrollment is needed. Permission to enroll and approval of arrangements must be granted by both class instructors and both class department chairs.  After the waitlist period ends for a term, use the Permission Request link from your Student Center in myCoyote to submit a request to both instructors and department chairs through this online process. View the How To tutorial to learn now.

·         Max Units Exceeded: In order to be considered to carry more than the maximum enrollment units allowed, a student must be eligible by having both a grade-point average for the previous term of 3.0 or better and an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or better. Additional units may be added only during the late registration period, if classes remain open, the course is not waitlisted and the Course Overload is approved. Additional registration fees must be paid, if any, and holds must be cleared prior to submitting a request to overload for processing.  For these requests, please use the Permission Request link from your Student Center in myCoyote to submit a request to overload through this online process.  View the How To tutorial to learn now.  In addition, during the summer 2020 quarter, only 9 max units will be allowed for the term, for both undergraduates and graduates.
