SPECIAL PERMISSION REQUEST FORMS
ALL requests for special permission are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.Receiving permission for a class guarantees you a seat in that class. You do not have to be cleared to register to receive special permissions.Forms are available in the CPEP (HH91) office.
In addition to the C & I courses, Bilingual majors will also need to request permission to enroll in MATH 106, 206, 364, 367 and POLS 122.
All unused special permissions will be removed May 1st or December 1st (depending on the semester), except for those students with a financial encumbrance.
Students must have a cumulative 2.50 GPA to receive permission for any C & I freshman/sophomore level course . Permissions will not be granted for any C&I upper level course (300/400) unless the student has a 2.75 GPA and is "fully accepted" to TEP.
