MAJOR RESTRICTION: Only students in certain majors are allowed to register for this course.

Only the department offering the class can approve overrides.

Restricted Class Permit Override

Permits are required for the following errors:

Major Restriction

Class Restriction

If a class is set up as permit only, then you need a permit.
