Office of the Registrar

Registration Hold

A student may not have finalized all University requirements which results in a registration hold. This “hold” locks the registration process and the student is required to report to the appropriate office before registering to have the hold removed. A student may view their registration holds, if any, by accessing the Registration Status under the Registration Menu on Eagle Online. The hold will list a brief description regarding the hold as well as the issuing department so the student will know who to contact for further information.

Holds that are Specific to the Registration Office

  • Selective Service holds – for students who are newly admitted, between the ages of 18-25 who are citizens and not veterans, and have not yet registered for Selective Service. To register for Selective Service, simply go to and submit your confirmation to the Registration Office.
  • Athletic holds - for students who are athletes and are not permitted to drop below 12 credit hours.
  • Update Address holds - The Business Office will require a hold put on students’ accounts at certain times in which their department has had mail returned. The Business Office will notify the Registration Center that an address hold needs to be placed on a student record. The hold is only placed so that the student may be notified that the University needs an updated mailing address on file. As soon as the student updates the address, the hold can be removed.
  • International Student holds - International students who are here on certain visa types are not able to drop below 12 hours. To prevent students from dropping below their hours and jeopardizing the status of their immigrations, they have to have permission from the International Office to drop below 12 hours.
