CSE Permission Number Request

Please use this form to make your Permission Number requests.

CSE Permission Number Request Form

General information

False or misleading statements about your academic record or filling out this form more than once for the same course may disqualify your request. Please allow for at least 2 weeks for your request to be reviewed and processed. Permission number requests for Computer Science & Engineering courses are typically managed through this form and not by emailing faculty or the Administrative Office staff.

Due to the volume of requests, you should only expect to hear back if your request can be accommodated. Please make other arrangements while you are waiting to hear. If after 2 weeks and the class is still listed as open in PeopleSoft, you may then contact the department for follow-up at CSE-permission@uconn.edu.

 Undergraduate Student

All pre-requisites and/or co-requisites for the course must be satisfied. Please see the catalog for requisite information. Priority in all CSE classes is given to Computer Science & Engineering majors, Computer Science majors, and Computer Engineering majors first. After that priority is given to Computer Science minors and other Engineering majors. Students not admitted to a CSE major are limited to enrolling in no more than 9 credits of 3000 and 4000-level coursework offered by CSE. Coursework at the 1000 and 2000-level are not counted toward the 9-credit limit.

Graduate Student

All pre-requisites and/or co-requisites for the course must be satisfied. Please see the catalog for requisite information. Priority in all CSE classes is given to Computer Science & Engineering majors and Master of Engineering students in the Computer Science & Engineering or Data Science concentrations. Students not admitted to a CSE or MENG degree track are limited to enrolling in no more than 9 credits of coursework offered by CSE.

International & Domestic Exchange Student

YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY EMAIL A PDF VERSION OF YOUR OFFICIAL ACADEMIC RECORD IN ENGLISH TO CSE-permission@uconn.eduFailure to do so will result in the inability of your permission number request to be reviewed. Additional information like a syllabus of a particular course may be requested. Students have the necessary pre-requisites for each requested course. Please consult our university catalog for a list of course pre-requisites. Exchange students who are documented Computer Science & Engineering majors at their home institution can request permission to enroll in any CSE class at UConn. Exchange students who are not Computer Science & Engineering majors at their home institutions are limited to requesting permission for CSE 1010 only. After your request has been submitted, if approved, the CSE staff will email your permission number to the advising office.

Non-Degree Student

All CSE classes require that a student have completed all of the pre-requisites or their equivalents (listed in the University of Connecticut undergraduate catalog) at their current institution. After your request is submitted, you must send a copy of an unofficial transcript from the institution in which you are seeking a degree to CSE-permission@uconn.edu. Permission is only granted when space is available in the class 4 weeks prior to the start of the semester.
