D-Clearance Request Form

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.
