If you have a hold on your registration, there may be a number of reasons why:

  • The Bursar may place a hold on your ability to register for classes if you are financially indebted to the University (e.g., for unpaid tuition, fees, fines).
  • The Graduate College may place a registration hold on your account in the case of an academic deficiency.
  • The Graduate Admissions Office may place a hold if your admissions file is incomplete.

If you have a hold on your registration and you do not know what it is, please call the Graduate College office (304.696.6606) and we will be able to tell you.

How to resolve a hold

To have a hold cleared from your student record, you would have to pay your account balance or correct an academic or admissions obligation.
