“So how do I enroll in the 2021 Winter Session?” That’s a great question!

Registering for courses as a non-degree/visiting student, is a simple two-step process designed to make our visiting students’ journey a whole lot easier. For more information about the Non-Degree application and registration process, visit UConn’s Visiting Students page.

If you are a visiting student coming from another University to take a course at UConn, let us be the first to welcome you! As you join the Husky family, here’s a few key ideas to keep in mind. 

As a visiting/non-degree student registering for a UConn course with prerequisites, you will be required to obtain a permission number in order to do so. Reaching out to your professor in order to receive the correct enrollment information is always the best way for you to receive course access.

Instructors may be able to provide you with a permission number to register for courses however, you will not be able to register for a specific class if any of the following is true:

  • The class is full. Lab courses can not be overenrolled due to safety concerns.
  • The remaining seats in the class are reserved.
  • You do not meet the prerequisites. Although you may have taken coursework elsewhere, if your UConn transcript does not demonstrate successful completion of course prerequisites, you will need permission to register. Your instructor may require proof of prerequisite completion.
  • The class is a graduate-level course.

This can be frustrating, we know. That’s why we want to help. 

In order to reach your instructor you may contact them via their UConn email address to request a permission number. If they don’t get back to you in a day or two, please reach back out to us! We will help to facilitate the conversation. 

If the instructor does provide you with a permission number, you must resubmit your enrollment request (including that permission number.) The easiest way to include the permission number is to click on the class when it is in your shopping cart. A pop-up window will appear in which you can enter the number before continuing.

In order to confirm the transferability of UConn course credits, we ask that you please be sure to check with your academic advisor at your home campus. This will help to alleviate any bumps along the road and make for an easier transfer process.
