Course Registration and Special Permission

Spring 2017 Registration 


Request Special Permission (SP) Numbers for Spring 2017

Quick Link to SP Request System

We are very much aware that some (eventually many) of our classes are full (and the stress that this situation creates for students).  We are doing our best to get as many students in as possible.  Please follow the procedure below to request SP numbers for full classes:

  1. Do NOT register for sections that do NOT officially appear on WebReg.  We will deregister you if you do.  And, meanwhile, you will lose consideration for SP numbers.
  2. Use this Web app to request an SP number for a full class:  You need to login using your CS, eden, or rci ID/password.  The use of this Web app will allow the department to track unmet demand for our classes.
  3. Watch for announcements below.  Announcements will typically appear on Monday, with the new capacity being added that day or as directed by the announcement.  Thus, you should only need to check this Web site on Mondays.
  4. Aside from us adding additional capacity, requests for SP numbers will be handled by course instructors closer to the beginning of the term (e.g., 2 weeks before start of semester)


  • We are working to add capacity to the 400-level courses.  Will post updates within the next two weeks.
  • We are also trying to add 1 or 2 additional 400-level courses.  We will try to get some definitive information asap.  Stay tune.
  • We will be making some announcements on this page regarding Spring 2017 courses on Monday 11/21/2016.
