If you are unsure who your advisor is, please open your student account in PAWS and check the right-hand column under ADVISOR. If you have not been assigned a History Department faculty advisor, please contact Laura Hargreaves at email@example.com or ext. 2341.
All new first year and transfer students in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, students who are on academic probation (i.e., a cumulative grade point average below 2.0) or whose advisors have requested so will receive an Academic Advising hold that can only be lifted by your advisor. You will not be able to register for classes until the hold has been removed.
To remove the hold, you must schedule an appointment with your advisor prior to your enrollment appointment to discuss your schedule. After the meeting, your advisor will remove the hold for you.
Faculty will not be able to remove any other holds, so be sure to be proactive in getting other holds removed.
Prior to Registering for the Next Semester
Students are required to meet with faculty advisors before registering. If you have an academic hold on your account, you will not be able to register for courses even during your enrollment appointment until it has been removed by your advisor.
Before meeting with your advisor, you should select several courses and add them to your shopping cart on PAWS. For the meeting, print and bring with you:
- Your updated program planner
- Your unofficial transcript from PAWS
- Your academic requirements as listed on PAWS
