Permission Codes

Summer Session manages all the permission codes in summer.  We distribute permission codes based on each course's needs and requirements.  Since we have full-time staff all summer, we are happy to manage this process.

With 250 classes and lots of issues like prereqs, holds on students accounts, non-UCSC visitors, time conflicts, overriding restrictions, accuracy of billing, and much more, it is dire that we manage the enrollment issues here in our office.

If students can't add a class:

  • This often reveals bigger or more complex issues, like time conflicts, unmet prerequisites, financial holds, inactive student status, and/or expired prerequisites.
  • They may be ineligible to take a class due to uncompleted prereqs, holds on their account, etc. which requires investigation and collaboration with other offices.
  • Prerequisites may have been completed elsewhere. If so, we need to get transcripts and work with advisers to verify them. 

Please forward messages and students to summer@ucsc.edu. Include your approval, if that is part of the issue.
