How to Fix the “Declare a Major” Hold for Freshmen

24 Feb

Here's how to kick that hold

Freshmen in CCAS — some of you may soon be getting an email from CCAS saying something along the lines of:

We have put a hold on your account because you have yet to declare a major.  Stop.  Proceed to a major declaration.  Proceed directly to a major declaration. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

Here’s how to get rid of that hold:

It’s a common problem for our earnest and high-achieving Honors students.  You have “too many” credit hours for a freshman, so the system (i.e. robots) thinks you’re a sophomore and need to declare a major.  But you don’t!  It’s a pain, but all you have to do is visit the CCAS office at Phillips 107 to explain and ask to have the hold lifted. Unfortunately we don’t have the power in our office.

We recommend doing this as soon as you receive notification that a hold has been placed on your account.
