Registration Holds and Required Verifications

Registration Holds

Students are responsible for making sure they have resolved any holds that would prevent course registration. Registration holds can be placed on a student for various reasons.  It is essential for students to take action to clear their holds in advance of their assigned registration date. 

How do I know if I have a registration hold?

  • Locate the Registration Tools channel on the Academic Services tab.
  • Click on the Registration Status link to view your registration eligibility.
  • Select the Term for which you plan to register.
  • Click the Submit button.
  • The next screen will indicate whether or not you have any holds that would prevent registration.
  • If you have a hold on your account, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the View Holds link to see who placed the hold on your account.
  • It is best not to wait until your scheduled registration day to resolve a hold.

How can I resolve a registration hold?

Only the department who placed the hold can remove the hold from your account. For example, only the Treasurer's Office can remove a Treasurer hold.  Here is a list of common registration holds and contacts:
