All students with outstanding account balances older than thirty (30) days must have services withheld until the balance is paid. The restriction of services will prevent the student from having access to transcripts, registering for additional classes/subsequent semester, or graduating until the receivable is paid. At many institutions, this restriction of services may be referenced as a “hold” on the student’s records. Once a hold has been placed on a student’s account, the student must not receive any services that would create additional charges.
In certain circumstances a limited amount of financial aid may be retroactively applied to a previous semester. In this scenario, the hold may only be removed in a controlled environment and only by the Registrar or designee. With the exception of retroactive application of financial aid, holds may not be removed under any other circumstances until student has paid account in full.
Note: Institutions may have more stringent restrictions that this section requires.
