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 his or her 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, unreturned 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 and Community Standards.
