Holds are put on student accounts with unpaid bills to the university, such as library fines, parking tickets, and unpaid tuition or fees from past semesters. There are other reasons for a hold as well.  You cannot register for classes if you have a hold. If you have a hold on your account, you may also not be able to obtain a transcript or your grades. 

You can access this information via your DegreeWorks account by logging on to MyInfo and accessing the Student Services tab.Any registration hold information is posted within the DegreeWorks heading.
