Permit Process and Timelines For Summer and Fall 2014 Courses

Permits are processed in the order they are received and take up to 2 business days. The courses below require information in addition to the permit request.

Students must complete both a CETL graduate courses permit request for Fall 2014 AND a separate 8713 questionnaire (for permission from the course instructor). Permit may be requested at any time. Permits will be issued in two priority groups.
