Selection of this box is REQUIRED for receiving a permit. By selecting this box you are confirming your understanding of the Biology course permit process, including:

  • Permits allow the student to register for the course (if open). Permits do not register the student - it is the student's responsibility to register for desired courses after receiving the permit. A permit does not obligate the student to take the course.
  • Most requests for permits will receive an e-mail; however, students should use OASIS as their confirmation - the permit will appear on OASIS.
  • Requests will be processed as soon as practical. Requests for permits are NOT processed after hours or on weekends.
  • Permits do not guarantee a seat in the course.
  • Errors can occur on OASIS. The Department of Biology is not responsible for activity on OASIS.
  • Students with prerequisite courses taken at an another institution cannot obtain a permit until the course has been completed and student can provide documentation of final passing grade.

Please see the the Department of Biology web site academic course page for more information regarding Department of Biology course descriptions.

I will be attaching documentation of completion of pre-requisites to this form, if the courses were taken at another institution -


Please complete if you have additional comments about your permit request.

Note: If you do not see the pre-requisites for the course you are requesting a permit for in your Degree Works audit you will need to submit documentation showing the pre-requisite. If you have questions to what type of documentation then please contact the front office at 813-974-3250

This can take up to three business days. to be processed, do not resubmit another request prior to this timeframe. Doing so could result in a delay of your request.

I confirm that I have read and completed/will complete all required prerequisites for these courses prior to the beginning of the term – Type Agree in the box below if you meet this requirement.
