Holds

  • indicated some type of academic tracking has been initiated;
  • prevent class registration;
  • prevent the release of transcripts;
  • prevent a student from graduating; or
  • all of the above.

Some examples of the types of holds that may be placed on a student’s record are:

  • Conditions on Registration: This type of hold means that there are conditions that must be verified or met prior to registration.   Students can contact the Academic Advising Office of the faculty, federated college, or academic unit for assistance with this type of hold.
  • Financial Hold: Depending on the amount, a student that has a tuition and fee balance owing may have restrictions on the release of transcripts and degree parchments or prevent them from class registration.
