Advising holds show as alerts in Schedule Builder and OASIS. Carefully check the date of pending holds, which are informational only, highlighted in tan/light yellow, and do not prevent course registration. Current holds are highlighted in red and DO prevent course registration. Visit your department’s undergraduate advising website for specific instructions to clear the hold.
