Holds placed on a student account result from a lack of payment of tuition, overdue library books, unpaid fines, failure to provide proper medical information to Student Health Services, or failure to meet preset academic requirements. Holds may only be lifted from a student record by the office that issues a hold. For example, a hold on one’s financial account can only be lifted by the Office of Financial and Accounting Services. Holds may prevent one from registering for courses or from graduating. Each student is responsible for addressing the circumstances related to holds.
