Mandatory Advising (Unblocking) Guide 

What is mandatory advising/unblocking?

              Mandatory advising, or unblocking as you may hear it called, is what COSAM students MUST do each semester before they can register for courses.  Every semester a “block” is put on your account, which prohibits you from registering until you visit your specified advisor.  Once you meet with your advisor, your PIN number is set allowing you to register for courses.


When should I come for mandatory advising/unblocking?

              Once your time ticket is posted on AU Access, it is important for you to come and see your specified advisor during their available times.  You will receive an email asking you to make an appointment through an attached link.  Most registration advising takes place in October or April.
