Permit Request Fall 2019

For Fall 2019:

Permit requests are due Wednesday, April 17.
Permits will be set between April 17 and April 19.
Phase I registration deadline is May 17. Unused permits will be canceled; new permit requests will be considered for Phase II registration on a rolling basis. 

To be considered for a course permit, please complete the following form.

Please read the requirements below before you request your permit:

CETL 8713 Fundamentals of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and CETL 8717 Course Design for Higher Education
Preference for these courses is given to members of Tech to Teaching. Additional students may enroll as space is available. New participants interested in joining Tech to Teaching should begin by completing the interest form.

CETL 8719 Teaching Immersion
The capstone is open only to Tech to Teaching members who have completed the foundation level learning outcomes. Participants should make arrangements with their school to teach or co-teach a course and then complete the Tech to Teaching capstone application form. Students may elect to take the capstone seminar for credit or not-for-credit. You do not need to submit this permit form.


  • Permits are no longer required for academic communication courses for nonnative/nonfluent English communicators: CETL 8723, CETL 8797, CETL 8796.


Terms of the CETL Graduate Course Permit Process
  • Students must meet all of the course requirements for any course they request a permit for. 
  • When a permit is issued, the student should receive an email.  However, students must use OSCAR as their confirmation that the permit has been issued. The permit will appear in OSCAR.
  • CTL receives a large volume of permit requests, and all permits are processed manually by a person (not automatically and immediately by a computer), so the process takes time. Permits are processed Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding official university holidays or days the university closes due to inclement weather. The time to process a permit varies by the type(s) of course(s), and in some cases, certain students have priority (see Permit Process and Timelines). 
  • Permits allow the student to register for the course (if open). Permits do not guarantee a seat in the course and do not register the student for the course.  It is the student's responsibility to register for desired courses in OSCAR after receiving the permit. A permit does not obligate the student to take the course.
  • Students choose to enroll in CETL 8713 and CETL 8717 as graded or pass/fail. If the course is to be used toward the doctoral minor in higher education, the course must be graded. CETL 8715 and CETL 8719 are 1-credit hour, pass/fair courses.
  • Errors can occur in OSCAR. CTL is not responsible for activity on OSCAR.
