Got Holds?

Shopping carts open October 1st for the Winter Enrollment this year and students are now logging into the Student Center more frequently to begin building their schedules. As the winter quarter enrollment period nears there are three major categories of holds that are appearing on student accounts recently (there are a few others that are less likely to appear). Some holds are unclear about what they mean and students are worried they may effect their winter quarter enrollment. Here is a little fact sheet about major holds and what they mean for students:
  1. Financial Hold
    • This type of hold needs to be resolved with financial services.
    • It could mean:
      • You have an unpaid bill.
      • There could have been a mistake and it needs to be clarified.
      • Or another reason.
  2. Advising Hold
    • This is a Semester Conversion I.A.P. Hold 
    • This hold will not prohibit a student from enrolling in classes for the winter and spring; however, the student needs to meet with their advisor and sign-off on their I.A.P. (Individual Advisement Plan) before they will be allowed to enroll in classes for the Winter Semester. 
    • Your advisor will be contacting you regarding a meeting to discuss the upcoming semester conversion and how you will stay on track with the new courses and requirements in order to graduate on time.
  3. Academic Advising Hold
    • All first years students at RIT are required to meet with their academic department to discuss their upcoming enrollment for winter.
    • This hold will only be removed only after a student meets with their advisor.
    • Recommendation: Contact your advisor now to schedule this appointment before enrollment begins. 
      • Advisors get extremely busy during enrollment periods and may not have time for a walk-in appointment.
***Students should begin resolving their holds now as they can effect enrollment for winter quarter.***
