why do i have an axess hold, and how can i lift it?

​In 2019, in response to historically low voter registration rates at Stanford, the Undergraduate Senate and Graduate Student Council passed ASSU Resolution UGS-W2019-18.

In accordance with this resolution, a Civic Engagement Course Enrollment Hold is placed on Axess every fall to encourage every undergraduate and  graduate student to register to vote.

If you are eligible, we urge you to register to vote using the registration software embedded in the hold (powered by Rock the Vote)! Stanford does not collect any data on your interaction with Rock the Vote.

However, you are not required to register to vote to lift the hold. Simply check the box to acknowledge the civic engagement recommendation, and you're set!
