Registration Holds

L&S has placed registration holds on undeclared L&S students who will end Spring 2018 with at least 75 units, not including units for exam credit (e.g., AP test credit). If you receive one of these holds, your course registration will be blocked for Fall 2018; registration for fall starts on April 16. To remove the undeclared student hold, you can either declare a major or meet with a staff advisor to review what requirements remain to be eligible to declare. Please review our page on declaring IB to learn more about our requirements and declaration process.

Continuing IB students also have registration holds preventing Fall 2018 enrollment. Students were emailed instructions on March 14 to remove their hold . The subject line begins "Fall 2018 Registration Hold."

Academic Progress Report Tool

Starting October 8, students will be able to check their progress toward university, campus, and college requirements using the Academic Progress Report tool (APR) in CalCentral. Please note that the APR does NOT accurately report IB major requirements and should NOT be used to check IB major progress. Students can check their own major progress using the major requirements page on our website.

Make an Appointment

Starting in Fall 2017, the IB advising staff will use the CalCentral appointment system for certain appointment types. For example, declaration and probation meetings will no longer be handled during a drop-in advising session. Refer to our Advising Services page for a breakdown of drop-in vs. appointment topics.

IB 77

Starting in Fall 2017, all students must have completed or be enrolled in either IB 77A or IB 77B to declare the major. IB 77A or 77B will be a graduation requirement for all students that declare IB in Fall 2017 or after. If you are already declared in IB (declared Spring 2017 or earlier), you do not need to take IB 77A or 77B, but are welcome to.
