Undergraduate Business Course Permit

What is a Permit?

Some courses are restricted due to pre-requisite requirements or class standing (sophomore, junior, etc.) requiring permission (or a permit) to register.  In some cases, a message in Schedule Planner indicates a permit is required. In other cases, students will receive an error message stating "Pre-Reg/Test Score Error," or "Class Restriction." 

For more information on permits university-wide, please visit the Registrar site.

For Students Not earning a Degree at USF

Permit requests for non-degree seeking or transient students are granted on a space available basis in the Muma College of Business. As such, non-degree seeking and transient students may not be permitted to register for Muma College of Business courses until the first week of classes.  Students must provide proof of completion of course, major, and degree program limited access requirements before permits will be granted (please see online USF Catalog)

Students must submit a copy (unofficial is acceptable) of transcripts for previous coursework earned. Students must email copies of transcripts.  The SUBJECT LINE of the email MUST read:  Non-Degree Processing and include your first name, last name and USF student ID number (U#) as assigned by USF.  (U-numbers can be found on OASIS). In the body of the email include: 

  • Name and USF student ID number (U#).
  • Phone number and email address.
  • Prefix and number (e.g. ACG 2071) of the course(s) for which a permit is desired.

The processing date will depend on course demand and availability. Requests will be processed between the university non-degree registration date and the end of the first week of classes.
