eAdvisor and Major Maps

Monday, July 20, 2020

Enrolled students with a remaining S67 hold from spring 2020 will have their major administratively changed by CISA (Tempe, Poly and Downtown) or NCIAS (West) starting today, 7/20/2020. 

Friday, December 28, 2018

Students with S67 officially twice off-track holds and fewer than 45 completed hours are having their major administratively changed to Exploratory today and Monday. Students with 45 or more completed hours have until January 17, 2019 to seek advising to change their major, or will be changed to an appropriate CISA or NCIAS major on January 18, 2019.

We are currently in the review process of all major maps, as well as minor and certificate requirements, for the upcoming 2019-20 academic year. You can look forward to seeing all new major maps posted when we go live with the 19-20 catalog (Degree Search) in February!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 academic year! For questions on major maps or critical tracking, please see the FAQ in the right-hand column of the eAdvisor and Major Maps page. For tracking holds and term processing questions, please see the Term Processing page.


I'd like to make a change to my major map. Who do I contact?

Changes to major maps can only occur during the annual catalog review cycle. Please contact your Catalog Coordinator for more information.

What students are included in critical tracking?

Critical tracking is intended for students who are attending college for the first time. The current criteria for this population are undergraduate ground (non-ASU Online) students who have either graduated high school within the last academic year OR students who graduated high school prior to the most recent academic year but have transferred in less than 12 credit hours.

As of August 1, 2014, ASU Online students with a catalog year of 2014-2015 and forward will see My Major Map on MyASU. This provides a similar student view with regards to course completion but does not include the tracking elements.

What critical tracking students receive eAdvisor holds?

The critical tracking population contains approximately over 30,000 students. Of this population, eAdvisor holds may be applied to current critical tracking students who also:

  • Started the semester enrolled in 12 or more hours and
  • Are currently active in a program and
  • Are not disqualified or ineligible and
  • Are not currently in Track Term 0 and
  • Are not a University College student (for twice off track holds/emails only)

As of August 1, 2014, ASU Online Students with a catalog year of 2014-2015 and forward will see My Major Map on MyASU. This provides a similar student view with regards to course completion but does not include the tracking elements.

Why won't the evaluation complete when I request one in PeopleSoft?

If an evaluation is requested and returns with an "Unsuccessful" message, please try a second attempt. If the evaluation still does not complete, use the Email Feedback link on the Advisor Tracking Tool pages to create a Service Now case. There are times when an evaluation may not run and investigation is needed. The Email Feedback link will contact the appropriate support personnel.

My student states they have transferred in more than 12 hours, so why are they still included in critical tracking?

If a student registers for classes before all their transfer hours have been posted in PeopleSoft, they will be included in a critical tracking student group. If additional hours were taken prior to their 1st semester at ASU, but do not get posted until a later date, they will then be inactivated from critical tracking when the additional hours are posted in the PeopleSoft system.
