Frequently Asked Questions
Undergraduate students are required to seek advisement prior to obtaining D-clearances. Students can receive advisement by going to the ISE Student Services Office, GER 247 to schedule an appointment, or by contacting Krystian Ruiz at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via calendly.com/krystianise. Students should review their STARS reports prior to seeking advisement. STARS reports are available on OASIS.
Graduate/Masters students can seek advisement from their advisors David Ho (email@example.com) or calendly.com/dho786/ise or Alex Luong at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or calendly.com/isealexluong.
Students should make appointments with their advisor well in advance of their registration appointment time. Students can make appointments by calling the ISE Department at (213)740-4893 or emailing email@example.com
If a course has a "D" designated after the 5-digit class number (such as 35100D), departmental clearance ("D-clearance") is required prior to registration. Students must request D-clearance for such courses through the online queue system. When a seat becomes available in a D-designated class, the student at the top of the queue is automatically notified through the student's USC email that D-clearance has been granted, allowing for that student to register using Web Registration. It is then the student's responsibility to go on Web Registration to schedule and register the cleared course. Detailed D-clearance instructions (PDF)

Undergraduate students will receive a Degree Deficiency Summary Report by email from the advisor. Students should compare the information on the Deficiency Summary Report with a current STARS report. Both of these reports are available on OASIS.
Graduate students will submit a completed Application for graduation AFTER you register for your final semester but BEFORE the deadline to register and add or drop a course. The department will send an email each semester with the deadline. Check the current schedule of classes for exact dates. https://viterbigrad.usc.edu/academic-services/graduation-checklist/
