Wait Listing and Permission Numbers for COMM Courses

The COMM class I want to enroll in is full: Can I still get in?

  • You can add yourself to the wait list for the COMM course IF a wait list has been set up for the course.  You'll know a wait list has been set up if you see the "wait list if class is full" option available during course enrollment.  If a spot becomes available later, you will be emailed a Permission Number or directly enrolled by the wait list manager (if there is no time conflict and space in your semester course load).

Should you email the COMM course instructor to obtain a Permission Number?

  • NO. Permission numbers are issued by the Department's wait list manager and will be issued only to those on the wait list. COMM instructors do not issue permission numbers.
  • For courses outside of the COMM Department, check with the department offering the course for their wait list and permission number policy.

For additional information about Wait Lists and Permission Numbers, please see our FAQ page
