Axess has been open for winter course enrollment since Oct. 24, but currently undeclared juniors are unable to register due to the hold placed on their accounts preventing winter quarter enrollment. Though technically required to choose a major by the end of sophomore year, a handful of juniors delay this deadline until the end of fall quarter of junior year.
Before this year’s freshmen sign up for classes on Axess, they must first make sure they don’t have a hold on their account. Starting with the Class of 2014, undeclared students must meet at least once a quarter with their pre-major adviser. To ensure the plan’s adoption, students who neglect to meet with their advisers will face an enrollment hold that only their advisers can lift.
