Department of History Course Permits


Registration permits can be issued by the department to history courses by following the steps below. Course permits are only necessary if the course is listed as "requiring department consent" in Titan Online.

Please check the Registration Calendar to verify that a registration permit can be issued for the current term.

Requesting a History course Permit


Course permits can only be issued with the instructor's written consent. To request a permit, please email the instructor with your full name, campus-wide ID number (CWID), and the requested course for initial approval, including the section number and semester.

If the instructor approves your permit request, they will contact the department at to request your registration permit. The department will verify eligibility and issue the permit if possible. You will receive an email from the account when your one-time use permit has been issued with instructions and expiration information. 

All permit requests must be submitted by the instructor to the account. Permit requests without instructor consent, submitted by the student and not the instructor, or submitted to an email address other than the account will not be processed.
