Enrollment Permission

What is a Permission?

A permission is a special key that allows you to bypass a problem that is blocking your enrollment in a particular course. You may need a permission if:

  • Enrollment in a class is by permission only
  • You have not satisfied a prerequisite
  • The class has already reached its enrollment limit

Many units assign permission for you to enroll on My.Butler by entering your name in an approved list. Once your name is on the list, just enroll in the class as you would any other, and the system will know you have been given permission.

How Do I Get permission?

Enrollment permission is managed by instructional departments or the colleges. Check below for who to call for the subject you want to take. 

If you were assigned permission to take a course and you are unable to enroll in the course, return to the issuer and see if the correct course and semester were used. If the issuer cannot resolve the problem, call Registration and Records at (317) 940-9203.
