Enrollment was kinda confusing and I have no idea what the permission number is and where to get it.

Chante Gonzales

I am trying to apply and step 10. where there is supposed to be an arrow you click to start enrolling isn't on any of my classes, so I am unable to enroll has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it so I can enroll in classes?

Hello Jing, Thank you for your question. Do you mind submitting a CS Support ticket with the information provided to research the issue? Thank you so much! Tanjagay Martin

Hello Chante, I’m sorry that you cannot enroll in classes. There could be several reasons why you’ve been unsuccessful. Please reach out to your college’s Records and Enrollment office, and they will assist you with your account. Thank you so much for your time. ~Tanjagay Martin | CS Core Trainer

Hi Neena, Thank you for your comment. Enrollment can seem a bit confusing at first, but there are resources that will help students as they go through the process. http://ctclinkreferencecenter.ctclink.us/m/79750/c/295265. With that in mind, class permissions are assigned by an instructor or enrollment services, permitting students to add or drop a class. We encourage students to contact their college's Enrollment Services office for further assistance. Have a great day! ~Tanjagay Martin | CS Core Trainer


It is too hard to register. As a Developer, you need to make a page that is for registration and put a big button that says, register for classes, there shouldn't need to be a lot of instructions. Please make this easier, I have spent 2 days and still have not been able to register and I may be signed up as an employee instead of a student.

After I click on the arrow in step 18 I am redirected to a blank screen

Hello Lincoln, You have a great question; thanks for asking. We recommend contacting your college's Enrollment Services office. Having your EMPLID, the course you're enrolling in, the browser, etc., will help them troubleshoot the issue. I wish you a wonderful day! ~Tanjagay Martin | CS Core Functional Trainer
