Common Online Registration Errors

Explanations of registration errors and their resolutions.


A Hold can be put on a student’s account by various departments for different reasons. Some of the most common causes of a hold being placed on a student’s account are:

  • Outstanding fees at the Cashier’s Office
  • Overdue library books/library late fees
  • Parking fees

All Holds must be cleared by the office that issued the Hold before a student can register, receive a transcript, receive their diploma, etc.

You may view your holds online after logging in by choosing:
