Sometimes students receive a communication by email or letter, or by checking "registration status" in Self-Service Banner 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 forms showing proof of required shots or a physical examination have not been sent or submitted.  Another example is when the Office of Student Financial Services 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 are blocked from scheduling or changing schedules until holds are removed.
