How Do I Manage General Permission Numbers?

January 17, 2023


Class permissions are numbers associated with classes that are assigned to students for enrollment purposes. In the Faculty Center under the My Teaching Schedule table, the Permission Numbers will display after a Permission Number is assigned to a student.

If a course requires instructor consent, students will need to obtain permission to enroll in the class. Permissions can be granted by providing students with General Permission Numbers.

General Permission numbers require that a permission code is generated and the unique permission code is given to students individually. Students will then enter this code in my.SDSU when enrolling in the course.

Please note that the course must be configured to allow for permissions to be added. 

Need to Provide Student Support?

Students will need to enroll in the class after you provide them with the class number and permission code. If you are helping a student enroll in your class with the permission code, please share the student permission code guide with them. If the student still cannot enroll, please contact your department scheduler.
