Clearing Holds

Some holds placed on your record can prevents registration. Any holds you may have will be listed on your student record in ACCESS. Types of holds that may appear include:

  • Financial - In most cases, financial holds may be paid in cash or by check at the Cashier's Office room 248 of the Taggart Student Center, or cleared online through the ACCESS system.
  • Nonfinancial - You must resolve all nonfinancial holds in person at the administrative office that imposed it.
  • Advising - Some majors may require students to be advised before registering for classes.

Records Hold

A 'Records Hold' will be placed on a student’s record when an outstanding financial obligation or disciplinary action has been reported.

When a 'hold' is placed on a record, the following results may occur: (1) An official and/or unofficial transcript may not be issued; (2) registration privileges may be suspended; (3) other student services may be revoked. The 'hold' will remain effective until removed by the initiating office. It is the student’s responsibility to clear the conditions causing the 'hold.'

Take any tests you need.

Some classes ask for placement tests before registration, see USU Testing Services for details. View more information about Credit by Examination and Advanced Coursework in the USU General Catalog.
