D-Clearance for Fall 2019

During the months of March and April, Roski departmental clearance requests must be submitted through the appropriate webform (links are below). Phone and email D-clearance requests will NOT be considered during this time. Requests will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis during normal business hours through May 9th.

Students can see approved D-clearance requests in Web Registration under My Info. Students should NOT expect to receive an email confirmation. Receiving D-clearance does not guarantee a seat in any class. Students still need to enroll in the course in advance of the D-clearance expiration date.

Each D-clearance usually expires after one week and does not automatically renew. If you do not register in time, a new request must be submitted via the appropriate webform. Please note: each D-clearance is specific to a single section. If you want clearance for a different section of the same course, you will need to submit via the appropriate webform.

Students will only be cleared for classes if space is available and if they have completed all prerequisites. Remember, a section of a course only requires D-clearance if there is a "D" following the section number. A section with an "R" following the section number does not require D-clearance. Unnecessary and improperly submitted requests will be ignored.

 

D-clearance for Roski Majors and Minors for Fall 2019

The webforms are password-protected. All Roski majors and minors will be emailed the appropriate password by March 8th. The webforms below will start accepting submission on March 11th. 

Advisors will process as many requests as possible via the webforms until, Thursday, May 9th. After this date, you must email your requests to your Roski advisor. Emailed requests should include the following:

  • Student name
  • USC ID
  • Course code
  • Course title
  • Section number(s)

 

D-clearance for Roski Graduate Students for Fall 2019

Advisors will start processing graduate student D-clearance requests on March 11th. To receive clearances, each Roski graduate student should email a list of Roski sections to their Roski advisor and meet with their advisor. Emailed requests should include the following:

  • Student name
  • USC ID
  • Course code
  • Course title
  • Section number(s)

A graduate student looking to enroll in a non-Roski elective that requires D-clearance should contact the appropriate department. As the term implies, each department is responsible for its own departmental clearances.

Graduate students must receive approval from their program director prior to enrolling in elective courses (applies to both Roski and non-Roski elective courses). Confirmation of the program director's approval should be sent to the appropriate academic advisor. A forwarded email will suffice.

 

D-clearance for Other (Non-Roski) Students for Fall 2019

A link to an online webform will be posted on this page on Friday, April 19th. It will become active on Monday, April 22nd at 8:30 am.

Advisors will process as many requests as possible through Thursday, May 9th. After this date, non-Roski students must email their requests to the appropriate Roski advisor. Emailed requests should include the following:

  • Student name
  • USC ID
  • Course code
  • Course title
  • Section number(s)

 

D-clearance for All Students During the Add/Drop Period (First Three Weeks of Classes)

To receive departmental clearance during this period of time, students need to email their request to the appropriate Roski advisor. The messages must include the following:

  • Student name
  • USC ID
  • Course code
  • Course title
  • Section number(s)
  • Written approval from the instructor
    • a forwarded email will suffice

Once an advisor receives such a message, a student may or may not be granted D-clearance. An instructor’s approval does not guarantee that a D-clearance will be granted. Moreover, an instructor cannot raise the seat cap. Such a decision is made by the school. Advisors aim to grant D-clearance, but a number of important factors need to be considered during the add/drop period.
