Advising Hold

Just a quick reminder that those of you that have not completed your CHBE 2100 or CHBE 2110 mandatory faculty mentoring or academic advising, will now have a hold placed on your account.  This hold will not only keep you from making any changes to your schedule during phase II this fall, but it will also prevent you from registering for the spring semester during Phase I this fall.

As always contact the Academic Advising Office if you have any concerns or questions!
