Academic and administrative offices may place holds on your record, cancel your registration, or withdraw you from classes for academic reasons, funds owed to the university, judicial reasons, or for failure to meet medical or immunization requirements. Registration holds prevent any registration activities, including adding or dropping classes. Some holds may also prevent you from receiving transcripts, receiving grades, or processing your graduation requirements in addition to preventing any registration activity.
Academic advising is recommended for all students and is required in most programs. An advising hold may be placed on your record if you are in a college or department in which advising is a mandatory prerequisite to registration. In such cases you must complete an advising session before your college or department will clear you to enroll. For additional information on the advising hold, please contact your undergraduate college office or graduate department office.
