Not sure why it is happening, but there have been a few students attempting to register for Portfolio in the last week or so. Registration for ALL Spring 2016 courses, including EDTECH 592-Portfolio, opens on November 2, 2015. Please put that date on your Google calendar and plan to Apply for Portfolio then. I won't even have the permission numbers to provide to students before about mid-October.
Once November 2 rolls around, I'll be able to help all students needing to enroll for Portfolio for Spring 2016! In the meantime, be sure that you have completed the Steps to Graduation before attempting to apply for Portfolio; any items undone at that time will only delay your enrollment.
