Request Department Permission here.  

Important note regarding how department permission is given.

Please note, at no time are spots held for AAD majors and minors.  All students interested in AAD courses that require department permission, including declared majors and minors must first request department permission via the pre-registration form.  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.

Department permission is given in the following priority order:

  1. Declared AAD majors and minors
  2. Non-major, non-minor, and undeclared students
 

More information about declaring majors and minors can be found here.  Contact, Pam Mongi if you have further questions about declaring.

How does department permission work?

Requesting department permission for a class does not register you for a class.  If and when you receive department permission you will be alerted via email.  Please at that time register for the class as soon as possible.  

DEPARTMENT PERMISSION EXPIRATIONS

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.  If for example your registration date is Monday, November 15, then your permission expires Wednesday, November 17 at 12:00 p.m.  After the first week of registration, department permissions expire two days after receiving the email stating your status.  

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

Non-major and non-minor 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 for information about how to get on the waitlist for departmental permission ART and DES courses.  For ARCH courses please contact Pam Mongi.  

AAD manages waitlists for these department permission courses only.

Waitlists for non-departmental 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.

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.
