“Because of the academic hold, I had to wait in order to register so it’s going to make me be late on some classes that I already know that I want and some spots might not be available, so that’s an issue. I had to set up an appointment and I won’t be able to get cleared until early December, [but] I was lucky. But, there’s still other students trying to make their appointment and everything is pretty much booked.”
“Yes, some of the classes were not offered here in Brownsville, they were offered in Edinburg. Some of the classes that I had to take for this semester, in order to graduate, were not offered this semester, so maybe they’re [not] going to be offered until next semester.”
“I had a small issue. One of the classes that I needed to register for, there was a hold on it. It’s a senior course, so you had to be graduating under the UTPA rules in order to register for it. This semester, they sent out an email where seniors did not have to go through that advisement process of getting the hold removed. That was the issue; there was still a hold. Basically, I just emailed them and they took it off right away.”
“I had a problem: There was
a hold that shouldn’t have been on my account. It wasn’t letting me register for one of the classes that I need to graduate.
I called the registrar; they took it off. It was that simple.”
