Annual Mandatory Advising Holds
To assist EBSE students in completing their program in a timely manner, and to ensure that students are well prepared for courses, annual advising is mandatory in the College of Engineering. Advising holds are placed on a student’s account once a year. This hold requires that you meet with your major advisor to discuss your educational, professional, personal goals and challenges. Not clearing the hold by that date will affect your next quarter’s registration.
