Meeting with your advisor


Freshmen students, international students, and some groups of transfer students are expected to meet and discuss their plans for the next term with their UD academic advisor. The goal is to ensure students have the information and tools they need to successfully plan their education and navigate IU.


No enrollment is allowed in the next term until the hold is released.

Release Procedure:

Discuss your plans for the upcoming term(s) in a scheduled appointment with your UD (or UD-affiliated) Academic Advisor. If you are pursing a restricted admission major (any major there requires a cumulative or in-major GPA above 2.0), then you are also required to declare an alternative major. Read more about the Restricted Admission Major Policy.

If you are a new student, we will schedule your first advising appointment for you as a part of New Student Orientation and will release your hold at that time.
