Registration Holds

If you have been placed on a registration hold, you are urged to resolve the hold as quickly as possible. You will be able to select courses through Online Course Selection, but you will not be able to complete the registration process until the hold is removed.

You can check the status of your registration holds through Student Information Systems (SIS). In SIS you can also look up your student financial account detail and balance, check the status of your financial aid, and verify the addresses maintained for you in the student database.
