Permission numbers are six-digit codes that you can use to override class capacity, override class prerequisites, and validate conditional registration. Issuing permission numbers for any reason is at the discretion of the department. If you transferred a course to Boise State and had to get an academic adjustment, chances are that you’ll get a registration error if that class is a prereq for a class you’re trying to register for. Just include a note about that in your email request and the department will confirm that you meet the prereqs for the class.
How to request FINAN permission numbers
Permission numbers may be requested by filling out the request form on the COBE Advising Services website
You may email Alex Williamson, the Department of Finance admin assistant: AlexWilliamson@boisestate.edu
You must include the following information in your email:
- Student ID
- Course and section number (example: FINAN 303-002)
- Reason for needing a permission number
Please allow at least 1 business day for a response to your request. Following the review, you will receive a response via email. Permission numbers are section-specific and you can only enter it once. You may not transfer your number to another student. If you receive a conditional permission number, you will have to meet all the agreed upon conditions in order to remain enrolled in the class. Enter your permission number when adding the class to your enrollment shopping cart on your myBoiseState student center.

Requests for non-business course registration should be sent to the department that houses the class you are trying to enroll in. Departments outside of the College of Business and Economics may have different processes for reviewing permission number requests.
