Add/drop consent

Some classes require special permission of the instructor or the department to enroll or drop. If consent is required, it will be indicated on the Berkeley Guide Class Schedule and in Schedule Planner. Contact the instructor or department to find out how you can add or drop the course. When add consent is required, you cannot even waitlist without consent. You may be given a permission number to enroll.

Consent is also required for undergraduates that wish to take graduate classes. This is true for all graduate classes and is not specifically noted on class listing information. Please contact the instructor for permission to enroll.  

In Schedule Planner, “Consent” refers to consent for adding a class, while “Drop Consent” refers to dropping a course.
