Holds on Records & Registration


C O N T E N T S

Overview

Holds prevent students from accessing services at the University. They may be placed on student records for a variety of reasons and must be removed by the initiating office.

A student may have holds placed on their record that could affect registration, enrollment, financial aid, campus services, and/or the release of diplomas and official academic transcripts for the following reasons:

  • Outstanding admission requirements
  • Failure to settle financial obligations with the University
  • Failure to respond to official notices

The University will release one unofficial academic transcript to a student with active holds. Unofficial transcripts are not printed on official transcript paper and do not bear the University seal.
