Special Permission Numbers

A Special Permission Number (SPN) is a 6 digit number that is used to allow a student to register for course that is full or that is not open to that student's major or class year. Students must consult with the department that offers the course to inquire about getting a Special Permission Number. For example, Biology 101 is full and you want to take that course. You should contact the Life Sciences department and request a special permission number. If they give you an SPN, you can attempt to register for the course on your own, or bring it into B100 or email to advising @ soe.rutgers.edu for further assistance. 

If you are a prospective transfer student (enrolled at Rutgers SAS, SEBS, etc), please refer to our School-to-School transfer webpage for instructions on requesting special permission numbers for engineering courses.
