SIS/Service Indicators - Manage Service Indicators Page


Service Indicators are used in a variety of ways to designate certain services or data for a student. Most generally, service indicators are used to prevent enrollment and access to student records.

There are two types of Service Indicators:

Positive Service Indicator (★) 

Positive service indicators have no impact on the student. A positive service indicator is mainly used for administrative tracking purposes.

Examples of Positive Service Indicators:

  • Eligibility for certain Financial Aid programs
  • Veterans Benefits
  • International Student Services
  • Computerized Records

Tip: When you see this icon, ★, select it to view the summary of positive service indicators.

Negative Service Indicator (∅)

Negative service indicators (also called ‘holds’) have a negative impact on the student. Negative service indicators prevent students from services such as enrolling in classes and receiving student records.

Examples of Negative Service Indicators:

  • Student Must Meet with their Advisor
  • Unpaid Tuition
  • Fee Holds (e.g. Library, Residence Halls, SHIP)
  • Default on Student Loan

Tip: When you see the negative service indicator icon, ∅, select it to view the summary of negative service indicators 

How do student view service indicators?

Students can view service indicators (‘Holds’) that prevent enrollment through MyUW in their Student Center, under ‘Tasks.’

When students receive their enrollment invitation they are directed to their Student Center to view any holds that may prevent enrollment.

Note: Instructions on ‘Fines and Holds’ and where to clear them can be found in the ‘Academic & Student Records’ section of the Office of the Registrar website.
