Blue Slip Process

Instructors may allow students to enroll in full classes, enroll in classes with waitlists, override prerequisites, or register late.  Students must request a Blue Slip permission form from the instructor.  The Blue slip expires three days after the instructor signs it.

In the format below, please include your full name, Student ID number, class item number (ex: 1505), course (ex: ENGL&101), and section (ex: A, B, OL1).
