To assist 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 students’ Schedule Builder account once a year.
Failure to clear your hold by the deadline will result in the inability to make any changes to your schedule.
Advising Hold Schedule
These schedules are based on the first letter of your surname:
A – G: Fall Quarter Hold
Students may start clearing holds on October 11, 2017

Seniors who plan to graduate in Summer 2018 or earlier may clear their hold at any time during the year, and are encouraged to request a degree check from the College of Engineering Undergraduate Advising Office three quarters before graduation.
Procedure to Clear the Hold
In order to have a hold released, you must create a draft academic plan for the next three (3) quarters, prepare a list of any questions you might have, and participate in an advising hold appointment.
ALL HOLDS MUST BE CLEARED BY APPOINTMENT. All current Civil Engineering students may schedule an appointment through the appointment system (select Civil Engineering).
