CTAN Elective Class - D-Clearance Request Procedures for Fall 2021

Next steps: on Monday the 19th at 10am most electives in CTAN will switch from “D” to “R”.

Then you can then directly register for the CTAN elective class you are interested in via web reg, if a spot is still open, if you have the pre req and as long as you have the grad memo if you are an undergrad trying to register for a 500 level CTAN class.

Students will NOT 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. If your d-clearance does not work, immediately contact us via email at: dsigismondi@cinema.usc.edu.
 
Each D-clearance usually expires three days after your request or after your registration appointment. If you do not register in time, a new request must be submitted via the webform. 

Please note: each D-clearance is specific to a single section. We do not grant clearance for multiple sections of the same course, you can submit multiple request, with your first one being your preferred. You will need to submit a separate request for each via the appropriate webform.

Students will only be cleared for classes if space is available and if they have completed all prerequisites (or have completed the pre req waiver process with instructor & department prior to requesting d-clearance and a waiver has been input in to SIS beforehand). 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.

Please note: If you are requesting d-clearance for a 500 level class and you are an undergraduate student, you will also need a permission memo from your major advisor. You will then need to email the memo, as an attachment to USC One-Stop/Registration Office at:  onestop@usc.edu to request to have them manually add/register you for the class, as web reg won’t let you register for a 500 level class directly. First you need to receive d-clearance for it from us though.

Link to our Google doc will become available here on Thurs. April 8th, 2021 at 9am.

Thank you for your interest in taking an elective in our Animation Division this coming Fall 2021.
