Permission-to-Add Codes (Faculty)

Permission-to-add codes override registration restrictions, such as class size and prerequisites. Please use them carefully.

Anyone with access to the class roll can create permission-to-add codes. Please remember that each time you click the “Create Registration Permission-to-add-codes” link, you create 10 codes and 2 audit codes. Because of this, make sure that you don’t give out more codes than your classroom can handle.



  1. Click on the button above and go to the class roll for the class you want to allow a student to register for.
  2. Click on the “Create Registration Permission-to-add Codes” link.
  3. A PDF document will open with 10 permission-to-add codes and 2 permission-to-audit codes.

    1. Print or save the document because once you close the window, you will not be able to access it again.
  4. You can give the codes to your students by phone, email, or in person.
