Before You Register


Please check your records prior to registration for any holds that may prevent you from registering. To check for holds, sign on to Web Banner and go to Student Services then View Holds. If you have a hold, use the link to the Faculty and Staff Directory to contact the holding office regarding clearance. Only the office that placed the hold on your record can clear it.

Permision Key Numbers

A Permission Key Number (PKN) is the electronic signature of the instructor that the instructor or the academic department provides a student in order to enroll in a course that is not otherwise open to the student. PKNs must be obtained from the course instructor for any course that is closed or otherwise restricted. The Office of Registration and Records does not assign Permission Key Numbers to students.

To determine if you need a PKN to register for a course, go to the online course schedule, click on the underlined Course Registration Number (CRN) for the course in question. If a PKN is needed, you will see "Department Approval" on the class schedule listing page on the upper left side. On the lower left side, you will see any restrictions on the course that also might require that you have a PKN to register.

Course Schedule

The Course Schedule is available online (see the "Quick Links" menu on the website). Learn how to read the course schedule.

Course Reference Number (CRN)

Each course is associated with a four-digit Course Reference Number (CRN) that is used to identify the course during the registration process.

  • The CRN can be found to the far left of the course discipline code (or subject code) and number in the course listings for each department. Here is an example:8278 SPN 111.31.
  • When choosing courses prior to registration, be sure to make note of the CRNs as well as the course disciplines and course numbers. You will be using the CRNs to register for your courses.
  • Click on the CRN to obtain supplemental course information and/or course notes, on the online Course Schedule
