Registration access may be denied (a registration hold placed on a student's record) because of academic dismissal, not fulfilling required faculty advising, a disciplinary problem, money owed to the University, failure to return library books and/or other supplies, or non-compliance with housing and health center regulations. The University places "Housing" registrations hold on the account of each student who by age may be required to live on campus. Holds are cleared from student accounts only by the issuing office and only after students meet the criteria that created the specific hold. New and returning students, required by policy to live on campus, are not eligible to register for classes for the coming year until the Housing and Dining Contract has been signed. New students must also have paid the $200 contract guarantee to the Business Office. Please note that Housing holds will not be lifted, even temporarily, until the Housing contract signature process is complete.
