Please review the following information before you request a permit for a course:

  • Most CETL courses are pass/fail and credit hours may not be counted toward degree requirements.
  • Students can elect to take CETL 8713 and CETL 8717 as graded or pass fail. CETL 8713 and CETL 8717 can count toward a minor in higher education if taken for a grade, with advisor approval. Students select the grading mode when registering.
  • Most courses require a permit issued by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) (see course descriptions for details).
  • Attendance on the first day of classes is mandatory, unless you have permission from the course instructor.
  • ONLY request a permit for courses for which you meet the stated course prerequisites or requirements.
  • Audits or overloads aren't allowed. No exceptions.

CTL receives a large volume of permit requests, and all permits are processed manually by a CTL staff member.  If, after reviewing the information above, you still have questions, email them to ctlhelp@gatech.edu.
