Advisor Tools - Current Advisee List

Advisor Tools is a portlet within MyMTech that allows advisors to view a list of advisees and any holds that they have. An email can also be sent to advisees through this program.

Student Information

Student information screen showing student name, holds and types

On the main screen you should see a list of your advisees, and some general information about them.

The information available here is the student’s name, ID, number of holds, and types of holds. To view a list of hold code types, and what they mean, click the question mark to the left of the “Student Name” column header. If a student has one or more holds, the number and types of holds will turn blue and be clickable.


Holds

To view holds, click on the number of holds or types of a specific student.

On this page, you will see a hold description, the hold types, and the date the hold was issued. After you are done reviewing the holds, click “Back to Advisee Holds List” to return to the main page.
