To-Dos & Events

To do's will show up as checklist items and ensure you don't miss important deadlines: Registration preparation, Financial Aid and Scholarship information, Graduation requirements, Registration Hold-related items, etc.

Events are campus-wide or tailored to you based on your responses to the intake survey! They include Welcome Week activites, Career Fairs, Advising Open Houses, etc. and are shared to keep you connected to each other and to campus support systems!


You can schedule appointments with advisors, faculty, and success coaches who have availability posted within MavCONNECT. You can also view past appointment information and see upcoming appointments.


Wondering about where to find things on campus, on our website, or who you need to contact for help? The Resources tab has everything you may need! You'll find information on tutoring, financial aid support, registration and advising, and beyond here.  It is all here! 

Holds Center

In the Holds Center, you will see any holds on your student account which impact registration or impact your student experience. If you have a hold, you'll find instructions on how to address and remove the hold in MavCONNECT. 

Students can make appointments with anyone in their Success Network if that faculty/staff member has set up availability. Students can schedule appointments through the Appointments tab of their MavCONNECT mobile app or desktop site. Note the following workflow shows the process through the desktop site.
