Hold Policy

Various University of Saint Francis offices may place a hold on a student’s record in the Registrar’s Office when money is owed, when items have not been returned to a university office or when required information or documents have not been provided to a department by the student. Reasons for a hold on a student’s record include, but are not limited to, an unpaid past-due balance on a student’s account for which payment arrangements have not been made, unpaid library or parking fines, university equipment or keys not returned, official transcripts not received by the university, and required documents or information not supplied by the student.

The consequences of a hold on a student’s record could include any or all of the following:

  • The student’s registration for classes will be deferred.
  • The student will not receive a copy of his/her university transcript.
  • The student will not receive a copy of his/her semester grades.
  • A graduating student will not receive a diploma.

A student who has had a hold placed on his/her records is responsible for contacting the university office that assigned the hold. When satisfactory arrangements have been made to resolve the issue, the university office will inform the Registrar’s Office that the hold has been removed or waived.
