Non-matriculated and visiting students often require permission to register for specific courses. Expect to be prevented from registering for the following reasons:
- Missing prerequisite
- Restricted to field of study
- Other restrictions not otherwise specified
- 300 or 400 level course
- Requires permission of instructor
- Requires permission of chair
The Schedule of Classes lists all prerequisites, required permissions and restrictions. If you are prevented from registering for the above reasons, you may contact the department or individual instructor to request electronic permission to register.
Receiving permission is at the discretion of the academic department, and is not guaranteed. Students should be prepared to demonstrate that they have met the requirements for registration and may need to show transcripts or course syllabi. When emailing the Department or instructor, students should include N# (New Paltz ID number) with all correspondance.
If a course is full, non-matriculated and visiting students will generally not be permitted to enroll.
