Admissions, Records & Registration
What is a hold?
A hold is a block on a student's record that prohibits one or more of the following:
  • Ability to Obtain a Registration Appointment
  • Ability to Register
  • Ability to Add/Drop Classes
  • Ability to Access Student Transcripts/Diplomas/Certificates, etc.

Holds are placed as a result of unpaid financial obligation to the college, regulatory requirements, or student behavior. The definition of proper financial obligation shall include, but is not limited to: student fees; obligations incurred through the use of facilities; equipment or materials; library fines; unreturned library books; materials remaining improperly in the possession of the student; and/or any other unpaid obligation a student or former student owes to the District. A proper financial obligation does not include any unpaid obligation to a student organization.

A student who wishes to investigate a hold placed on his/her academic record should do the following:
  1. Check the student's Academic History to determine the number of the hold(s).
  2. Check the Hold Definition List.
How do holds affect student records?
Students or former students who have been provided with a written notice or student email that they have failed to pay a proper financial obligation shall have grades, transcripts, diplomas, certificates, and registration privileges withheld.
Release of Records
Records will be provided:
  1. During a period when facts are in dispute.
  2. When it is demonstrated to the Director of Admissions & Records that reasonable progress is being made to pay the amount owed or that there exists a reasonable justification for delay in repayment.
  3. Upon payment of amounts owed.
Appeal Procedure
A student whose records have been withheld may appeal the action through the Student Grievance Procedure (Policy 5530).
