Academic Advising for Holds

These are the steps you must follow to be able to register for classes:

  1. Check to see if you have a hold. If you don't have a hold, go ahead and register. Otherwise, check the screen to determine what kind of hold you have.
  2. Get an advising worksheet from the Computer Science Department office in 8-49 or download one here (MS Word format).
  3. Fill in all of the information requested at the top of the advising worksheet. In the first box list all courses currently in progress this quarter.
  4. Meet with a CS academic advisor to review the courses you would like to take the following two quarters.
  5. If your GPA is below a 2.2, make sure to review your grade points with your advisor to determine whether you are in danger of disqualification. You will be disqualified if your grade point deficit falls into one of the categories outlined below:

    Class Level

    Total Quarter Units Completed

    Grade Point Deficit


    Fewer than 90

    22.5 or More



    13.5 or More


    135 or more

    9.0 or More

  6. After completing the form, sign it and get your advisor to sign it. Then take the completed advising form back to the department office so that your advising hold can be lifted
