    Check your eSTORM Account for Holds

    On the right side of your student center, find the box labeled Holds. Many holds will deny you the ability to enroll in classes.

    Check your eSTORM Account – do you need to be Term Activated?

    You will need to be Term Activated and have a valid Enrollment Appointment to enroll. Both of these are manual processes and need to be done by the staff in the Enrollment Services Office if you have not been enrolled in the last three semesters. Contact the Enrollment Services Office at 618-235-2700, ext. 5455 during regular office hours for further help.
