Holds are designed to help you navigate your degree program. Holds placed on your account will affect your registration. Here are some common holds from Anderson Advisement and how to get them resolved.

New Transfer Check-In

All new transfer students will receive this hold during their first semester (day 28 of each fall/spring semester) at UNM – Anderson School of Management. The New Transfer Student Check-In hold is intended to help transfer students prepare for their second semester by meeting with their advisor to go over deadlines, review degree requirements, course planning, understanding the LoboTrax Degree Audit and utilizing other tools and resources.

Removal: Meet with an advisor by making an appointment through LoboAchieve or attending drop-in hours.

Degree Progress Check

Students receive a Degree Progress Check hold each semester (day 28 each fall/spring semester) if they have not completed Phase I requirements and have sixty (60) or more earned credit hours and have not yet been admitted to Anderson. Advisors will review your LoboTrax and your class schedule and help you get on track for admission to Anderson.

Removal: Meet with an advisor by making an appointment through LoboAchieve or attending drop-in hours.

Apply to Graduate

Students will receive the Apply to Graduate hold when they have ninety (90) or more earned credit hours but have not yet submitted a Graduation Application.

Removal: Complete a Graduation Application. If you need help in determining your Graduation Term or if you want to confirm you are on track for graduation, make an appointment through LoboAchieve or attending drop-in hours.


At UNM, a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is required to maintain good academic standing. If your GPA falls below 2.0, you will be placed on academic probation. After two consecutive semesters with a cumulative GPA below 2.0, academic suspension can occur. Academic probation allows you to work with a support system to prevent academic suspension in the future. In order to avoid suspension a 2.0 cumulative GPA is required to be removed from probation status or a 2.5 semester GPA to continue on probation for another semester.

Removal: Meet with an advisor by making an appointment through LoboAchieve or attending drop-in hours. Also complete the online Academic Success Workshop, which will be sent to you if you have a probation hold.

If you have questions about holds, please call our front desk at (505) 277-3290.
