Holds can prevent you from registering for classes, adding and dropping classes, receiving transcripts, obtaining grades, or graduating.
To view any of the following, please login to your CMS Student/HR account at MyCSUMB. You should check your Self-Service page for holds at least two weeks prior to your registration date in order to have time to clear any holds that may prevent registration.

Holds are placed on a student's account for various reasons, including; money due to the university, library fines, outstanding dishonored checks, lost key charges, immunization requirements not being met, admission requirements not being met, or remedial course work requirements not being met.

Below is a list of holds that may impact your ability to register:

ADV - ADVISING HOLD
Advising Holds may be placed on a student's records for several reasons listed below. In each case, the student will need to contact their advisor to have the hold released.

• ADV/DMJR: Major Declaration required; University policy requires a declaration of major by the time one has taken 70 units. You must meet with an academic advisor to declare a major before you can register or make any schedule changes. Please see the Undergraduate Advising Center or faculty in the academic program in which you intend to major for assistance. Your hold will be lifted when declaration of major has been processed by the Office of the Registrar.
