How do I request to take department permission courses?

AAD majors and minors and students currently enrolled in AAD courses will receive the pre-registration link via email by Tuesday, April 13.  The form will close 9am Friday, April 16.  

Please wait for confirmation from department staff for department permission override and/or waitlist status.  

How will I know whether I have received department permission?

If approved, you will be notified of your department permission status by email as well as notice an override on your Banner account.  You may at this time register for the class.  After requesting department permission via the google form, please wait for confirmation from department staff regarding department permission override and/or waitlist status.  

AAD Majors and minors will have first priority for department permission courses, and after this, remaining spaces will be offered to non-major students.  Permissions are determined by course instructors at the close of this form and throughout the registration period.  Please be advised that there is no guarantee that space will be available.  

Students who have not received department permission will be notified by email that they have been placed on the waitlist.  If spaces become available the department will notify the student.  AAD maintains a waitlist for courses that require department permission and you will be notified of your status on the waitlist during the registration process.  Please refer to information about waitlists below that are not managed by AAD.    

IMPORTANT: Once you receive departmental permission approval, please register for the class according to the official registration dates and times for your class year.  Departmental permissions expire at 12:00 p.m. two days after your official registration date. After the first week of registration, department permissions expire 48 hours after receiving the email stating your status. 

I’m not a major in the department, but want to take a department permission course. How do I go about doing this?

Non-major students are welcome to apply for department permission for courses they are interested in.  Majors and minors of AAD will have first priority for department permission courses, and after this, remaining spaces will be offered to non-major students.  Permissions are determined by course instructors during the registration process.  

 
I did not apply for department permission, and want to take a department permission course, but it is full now. How do I get on the waitlist?

Please contact Christine Kreschollek ctk213@lehigh.edu for information about how to get on the waitlist for ART and DES courses.  For ARCH courses please contact Pam Mongi pgm0@lehigh.edu.  

Waitlists for AAD department permission courses are maintained within the department.  Waitlists for non department permission courses are managed by the Registrar.  Please follow this link to learn more about how you can get on the Registrar’s Office waitlist.  

 
Are there any new courses available or courses not in the catalog.
What happens if I do not attend the first day of class?

The first day of class is mandatory for all students.  Rostered as well as waitlisted students are required to attend the first day of class.  During the first class session, the professor will review waitlisted students to determine if a student can be added to the class.  If you do not attend the first day of class the professor will replace your space with another student and you will be required to drop the class.  

How do I go about declaring a major or minor with AAD?

To learn more about the declaration process and the forms you will need to fill out, including the university's major declaration form, please contact Department Coordinator, Pam Mongi (pgm0@lehigh.edu).

How do I know what courses I will need to take for my major or minor?
