Sometimes students receive a communication by email or letter, or by the bold red heading across the registration screen, informing them that they have a “hold” on their academic records.
A hold is placed on records by an academic office when important transactions or documentation have not been completed. For example the Health Center may place a hold on a student's record because he has not shown proof of required shots or a physical. Another example is when the Bursar’s Office places a hold because a fine or fee is overdue. It is important to call or visit the office involved to get the hold resolved.
Students do not get course requests processed unless holds are removed, and holds also prevent changing your schedule.
