Athletic Certification Hold

The academic certification hold is a best practice for athletic certification for degree progress and your eligibility to play varsity sports. The hold will stay on your account as long as your are a UMD student-athlete. If you need to make changes to your schedule, please follow these steps:

  1. Email Bulldog Advising, bdadvise@d.umn.edu to request a record review. You must provide the following 3 details per enrollment adjustment
    • Action requested: - example: add a class, drop, switch section
    • Term - example: spring 2013, summer 2013, fall 2013
    • Class Subject & Number - example: WRIT 1120
  2. You will receive an email response/confirmation. For approved requests, the certification hold will be lifted for 1 day allowing you to adjust your schedule in that window of opportunity. You must make the change within the approved time frame.
  3. Cancel/Add Schedule requirements such as department authorization may still be required after the semester begins. Refer to the UMD Cancel/Add Deadlines on One Stop for guidance.
  4. Certification holds will be lifted to correspond with the date of your registration appointment (queue time).
