How Do I Use Service Indicators?

August 29, 2022


Service indicators have positive or negative impacts on student files and records. Service indicators may be accessed via the Student Service Center.

Service Indicators on student record

Negative service indicators are indicated by a circle with a diagonal slash. This icon means that the student has something that must be addressed/rectified before they become a student in good standing (i.e., financial aid has placed a “hold” which prevents aid from being dispersed). This icon may also indicate a transcript hold or denied registration of classes.

Positive service indicators are indicated by red stars that designate special services students are entitled to receive. Positive service indicators do not have impact values but may be used as criteria when providing some services.
