    The "enrollment contingent on instructor permission" is premised on the fact that this is a course for students who are engaged with the criminal justice system directly, or who have been, and the credit-level earned by students enrolled in the course level is linked to whether or not they are doing this work with the criminal justice system outside of the classroom.
