Service Indicator Resources:

The Service Indicator Crosswalk provides a reference for staff who will, as of COMPASS Release 4, be using service indicators within the SIS.  Each UF college, department or unit has its own specific tab within the greater spreadsheet dedicated to that unit’s service indicators, listing the UF hold within Student Admin; service indicator code; service indicator reason; a short description of the relevant service indicator; and the service indicator display text.
