Advising Hold Information

Are you seeing an ADF or ADS hold? Click the section below that pertains to you for more information. 

Each semester, an advising hold is placed on your account to ensure that you meet with your academic advisor. This meeting will include a discussion of classes for the coming term, graduation plans, opportunities to get engaged on campus, and other topics related to your major or your success.
