By selecting the box below, you confirm your understanding of the School of Geosciences 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.
  • Students should use OASIS as their confirmation - the permit will appear on OASIS.
  • Requests will be processed in the order received. Processing time will be longer if course evaluations need to be completed first. Do NOT submit a permit until course evaluations are completed!
  • 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 School of Geosciences is not responsible for activity on OASIS.

Requests will be processed within 3 working days, except during high-volume times. High volume times include: the week prior to school starting, the first two weeks of school, and the first month of registration. Requests for permits are NOT processed after hours or on weekends.

Confirmation of student understanding. Selection of this box is REQUIRED for receiving a permit.

For EVR 4940 or EVR 4910, please email GeoAdvise@usf.edu for the up-to-date contract and permitting/registration instructions. Please do so before submitting your permit request.

For independent study or undergraduate research for credit in the geosciences, please obtain permission via email from a faculty member. The faculty member should include a description of your research project or independent study plan along with the number of credits you will receive in their email. Please then forward the permission email to GeoAdvise@usf.edu for review.
