Fall 2024 Mandatory Advisement

Declared Annenberg majors are required to meet with an adviser once per semester for mandatory advisement. Meetings are scheduled based on class standing, which reflects the number of units completed. Please review the PDF icon Advisement Flier for details.

Non-Major Advisement

Non-majors are encouraged to attend an information session to learn about Annenberg’s majors and minors. Non-major students may RSVP for these information sessions on the following website. After the mandatory advisement period ends, advisers will be able to meet with non-majors for an appointment. To schedule an appointment to meet with an Annenberg adviser after April 19, please send an email to

Fall 2024 JOUR/PR D-Clearance Process

D-clearances will be issued based on program, class standing, and graduation date first, and then on a first-come, first-served basis. Submitting the online d-clearance form does not issue d-clearance, nor does it guarantee that you will receive d-clearances for your first choice. Please plan for alternative courses while you wait for d-clearance approval. Please review the PDF icon D-Clearance Flier for details. 

The fall 2024 d-clearance form will close on August 15th, 2024. Once classes begin on August 26th, you must make d-clearance requests directly to the professor of the course.


If you receive clearance, you are responsible for registering for the course on Web Registration. Annenberg Advisement cannot add or drop courses for you.
