"S.H.I.E.L.D.'s whole infrastructure is based on the hierarchy and compartmentalization of information."
~ Agent Jemma Simmons, 1x07 The Hub

To date we know there are 10 levels of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Each clearance level is privy to certain information made available to that particular clearance level, though agents may also be specifically given or denied access to certain information at the pleasure of Director Nick Fury or at the necessity of certain high level missions. It is implied in the "1x01 Pilot" episode as well as Marvel one-shot The Consultant that Levels 1-6 are widely known within the organization, with Levels 7 and above on a need-to-know basis.

  1. In 1x06 F.Z.Z.T. while talking to Agent Coulson reveals he is Level 7 when he says "I don't know what happened to you in New York, if you really flat-lined or if that's just what they tell us when we get to Level 7."
  2. As revealed on his ID badge in 1x07 The Hub.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 It is heavily implied that Agents Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, and Tyler are Level 7 as well, since the Helicarrier was staffed entirely by Agents level 7 or above during The Avengers.
  4. (Assumed due to her role as mission controller in the Level 8 classified south Ossetia Overkill mission.)
  5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  6. Implied in 1x14 T.A.H.I.T.I. due to Fitzsimmons automatically assuming the Level 10 operative in the T.A.H.I.T.I. report can only mean Director Fury. Also because in 1x20 Nothing Personal, Hill never learned the identity of Project T.A.H.I.T.I.'s supervisor, which is revealed within the Level 10 transmission sent to Director Fury.
