Holds on Records and Registration 

Effective: June 29, 2009

Policy Owner: Academic Affairs

The University may impose holds on student records for financial, judicial, or academic reasons.

Holds may be placed on a student's record under the following circumstances:

  • In order to assist the student, advisers may at any stage during a student's academic career impose a hold on their record that affects the student’s ability to register when appropriate for advising purposes.
  • The University may place a hold on a student's record for a violation of Board of Regents Policy: Student Conduct Code or for failure to meet financial obligations to the University (for example, unpaid bills, library fees, un-returned keys).
  • Academic Affairs may designate other appropriate reasons for the University to place a hold on a student’s record.

A hold ordinarily will prevent a student from obtaining an official transcript or registering for courses or making changes to courses for which they have already registered.

To remove a hold from a student record, the student must first pay the debt owed; correct the deficiency or problem; or be cleared by the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution.
