Assigning Advising Holds (NAV Service Indicator)
Advising Holds (or NAV Service Indicators) prevent all initial registration activity. Prior to pre-registration every semester, each college/program defines criteria for which students should receive this hold automatically assigned. UNO Staff with approved access can assign or remove the Advising Hold at any time.
Advising Hold Assignment/Release Timelines
All Advising Holds are released (current semester) – after first week of classes
All Advising Holds are Mass Assigned (future semester) – One month prior to semester schedule go-live
Advising Hold - Assign and Release
Service indicators used for Advising Holds can be assigned and released prior to Mass Assign. If you are pre-Advising a student and want to prevent a Advising Hold (NAV) from being assigned during the Mass Assign process, you can Assign and Release at any time for an upcoming semester.
Once an Advising Hold has been present for a Term(s), the Mass Assign Process will not re-apply another Advising Hold (NAV).
