If a faculty member has created permission-to-add codes for a class, a “P” will appear on the registration pages.
A student who has a permission-to-add code clicks on the “P” and then enters the permission-to-add code in the pop-up box. If there are no holds on their record, the system will register the student for the class and confirm their registration.
You will need to check with the faculty member to see if they will be issuing permission-to-add codes and if they will grant one to you. Only faculty or department personnel will have the ability to create and disseminate permission-to-add codes.
If you want to audit a class, you must receive a permission-to-audit code from the instructor. All permission-to-audit codes begin with the first five digits of AUDIT. If you want to audit the class you must have a permission-to-audit code. Permission-to-audit codes will not work until the first day of class.
Students will no longer have to pick up an add card, get a signature, and then turn the add card into the Registration Office to be added to a class. The instructor can control who they want to allow to add their class and students can use the codes anytime and from any computer until the add deadline. Faculty can distribute codes in class, via email, or any other way and time convenient for them. The system is available 24 hours a day so it will be more convenient for students and faculty.
No. Each permission-to-add code can only be used once. Once it has been used, it is no longer valid. Each permission-to-add code is randomly created and works for a specific class, section and year term.
Registration methods still control how a registration can be done.
“F” means the system will let students add online as long as there is a seat available and they meet the limitations up until the first day of school. Beginning the first day of school, all students will need a permission-to-add code to enroll in the class.
“O” means the course will allow online registration as long as the class has seats available and the student meets any limitation requirements. A permission-to-add code would only need to be issued for this class if all seats become full and an instructor wants to allow an additional student in the class, or if an instructor wants to allow a student who does not meet the limitation (i.e. majors only) to enroll.
“S” will now mean that a student will need a permission-to-add code to enroll for the class anytime. Rather than using an add card with a signature to add the class, the faculty/department will issue permission-to-add codes to all students they want to enroll in the class.
No, you need to manually add the class. To do this, log into MyByu and select "MyMAP" under the "school" section. Go to the "register" tab at the top. Select the appropriate semester/term and click the "Add Class" button. You will see a list of classes you have been given permission to add. You MUST select the "A" to finalize the process and to be registered in the class.
Permission-to-add codes are used by faculty/departments to allow a student to register for a class that is either full, has a limitation not met by the student, or requires special authorization.
Permission-to-add codes are randomly generated alphanumeric codes and are only valid for the specific class, section and year term. They are not case sensitive. They expire on the add deadline. They can only be used once.
The pdf document with permission-to-add codes listed can be printed. If the page is closed before printing, the codes cannot be recreated. A new page of permission-to-add codes can be created by clicking on "Create Registration Permission-to-add Codes" link on the class roll. There is no limit on the number of codes that can be created by repeating the process.
Faculty/departments can create as many permission-to-add codes as they wish, but must remember that any student with a code will be able to add the class.
If a department has a course for which they do not want anyone to have the ability to create permission-to-add codes, the department may contact Academic Class Scheduling who will remove that ability. This is done at the course level and not the class level. In other words, all sections of the course will be blocked, irrespective of where or by whom the course is taught.
The faculty/department can create "permission-to-add" codes and give a code to the student. This is done by clicking on the "Create Registration Permission-to-add Codes" link on the class roll and distributing the code to the student. The student uses the code in the online registration system. A "P" will appear on the registration pages for classes where permission-to-add codes have been created. The student clicks on the "P" and then a box opens with entry boxes for the student to input the permission-to-add code. Once they enter the code the system will verify if they have been added to the class. Permission-to-add codes will not override holds the student has on their records. Students need to clear all holds before using the permission-to-add code.
All students wishing to audit a class must use a permission-to-audit code to do so, which indicates they have permission to audit the class. Permission-to-audit codes can be generated prior to the beginning of the semester/term, but will not work until the first day of school. Permission-to-audit codes all have AUDIT as the first five digits of the code. Students registering for credit should have priority over students wishing to audit a class.
