What is an Exceeds Hours certification hold?
To ensure that all undergraduate students make appropriate progress toward completion of a degree, new first-time students are required to enter a degree-granting program by the end of their third semester of enrollment (excluding summers). New transfer students are required to enter a degree-granting program by the end of their second semester of enrollment at Indiana University-Bloomington (excluding summers).
No enrollment is allowed in the next term until the Hold is released.
In order to remove the hold, discuss your plans for earning admission to your intended degree program in a scheduled appointment with your UD (or UD-Affiliated) Academic Advisor.
Policy for students admitted before 2015:
To ensure timely progress toward degree completion, UD expects students to be admitted to a degree program no later than the beginning of the term following the one in which they complete 70 credit hours. Transfer students who enter UD with close to, or more than, 70 credit hours are expected to be admitted no later than the beginning of their third term of Bloomington enrollment.
