Authorized University staff and faculty may impose holds on student records for financial, student conduct, or academic reasons. A hold may prevent a student from obtaining an official transcript, registering for courses, or making registration changes.
- For advising and academic purposes, advisers or authorized collegiate staff may place a hold on the student’s record that prevents the student from registering or making registration changes.
- Authorized University staff or faculty may place a hold on a student's record for a violation of Board of Regents Policy: Student Conduct Code, or for failure to meet financial obligations to the University (for example, unpaid bills, library fees, unreturned keys).
- The Executive Vice President and Provost and/or Vice President for Clinical Affairs may designate other appropriate reasons for the University to place a hold on a student's record.
- To resolve a hold and have it removed from the record, the student must first pay the debt owed, correct the deficiency or problem, or be cleared by the Office for Community Standards (or the appropriate office on the system campuses).
This policy is not applicable to the Duluth campus.
Reason for Policy
Holds are placed on student records to protect the University’s interests, guide or compel student action, and enforce policy. Placing holds is not an arbitrary action. Only certain offices on campus are able to place and/or remove holds.
