Permission Number

Permission Number

A permission number (also known as an “add code”) is a 5 or 6-digit number given to students, by the instructor of the course, or the department that offers the course. Permission numbers are needed for all courses in which instructor or department consent is required. Once you have received the permission number, you may register for the class online through MySJSU.

NOTE: Permission numbers can only be used once and they do not expire.


 “Instructor Consent” or “Department Consent”

Should you receive a registration error indicating that “Instructor Consent” is required, you must go to the instructor to obtain the Permission number. To add the course, use the Permission Number with the Class Number for that specific course section, as listed in the course schedule.“Department Consent” requires students to go to the department that offers the course to obtain the Permission Number. To add the course, use the Permission Number with the Class Number for that specific course section, as listed in the course schedule.Permission numbers become ‘used’ only after an enrollment request is successful. To assure a successful enrollment request if you are adding using a permission number, remember the following before clicking the submit button:

  • Check that you have no holds.
  • Check that you have met all prerequisites.
  • Only enter the enrollment section in the class number section.
  • Enter any and all Component Courses (e.g., corequisite labs or seminars) and determine what required course is approved even before trying to "Enroll in the Class."

To enroll if you submitted a number but received an error, re-enter the same permission number after resolving the error.
