Students are encouraged to choose the options that are most relevant to their post graduation plans. Please note, an appointment with your major advisor WILL NOT clear your hold. Drop in advising does not count as one of your engagements. Once you have completed two engagements, you will need to fill out a survey in order for us to release the hold.
