Permission numbers for undergraduate OLPD courses can be requested by completing the Undergraduate OLPD Permission Number Request Form. Current BME and HRD students should not use this form, and should contact their OLPD Advisor with any issues registering for any OLPD courses. If you are a current BME or HRD student seeking permission to register for the OLPD 4696 Applied Experience course, you can find more information here.
