The D-Clearance process is used by the School of Architecture to ensure our courses are open only to those who have met required pre-requisites and to manage class enrollment. Courses that require D-Clearance will have a “D” after the five-digit class number (i.e. 11200D), and you must obtain D-Clearance before you can register. D-Clearances are given on a first-come first-serve basis and must be requested from the Academic Department offering the course. 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Undergraduate Bachelor of Architecture and B.S. in Architectural Studies students should check their latest Advisement Sheet, refer to the Catalogue (USC entry year) for the sequence of requirements or schedule an appointment with their Academic Advisor.
