70.04 Release of Fiscal Holds Issued: May 15, 1998
1. Fiscal Holds
The University places a fiscal hold on all students owing a balance to the University
to prevent them from registering for a future semester or from receiving a
transcript until the balance is paid.
2. Release of Fiscal Holds
2.1 Requests for releasing a fiscal hold prior to payment in full of the balance due
are considered on a case-by-case basis by the Controller. Reasons for granting
such requests include, but are not limited to, the following:
a. Financial Aid for the current semester is sufficient to cover the prior
balance due and the current semester’s tuition and fees.
b. Student is an employee of the University and agrees to pay prior balance
with their next paycheck.
c. Student has signed a payment plan agreement and is in a current status
d. An administrative problem prevents the University from applying
University administered scholarships to the student’s account.
2.2 Approved requests to release fiscal holds to allow students to register
are documented on the Request for Fiscal Hold Release for Registration
form (Attachment 1) and approved by the Controller.
2.3 The Accounts Receivable Office manually lifts the registration hold for
all approved requests.
2.4 The fiscal hold is automatically restored in SIS+ on a daily basis.
3. Reinstatement Request
3.1 Students who have been dropped may complete a Request for Reinstatement form during the
reinstatement period. The reinstatement period begins on the 13th class day and ends on the 20th class for Fall/Spring and begins on the 5th class day and ends on the 15th class day for Summer.
3.2 Each student seeking reinstatement must pay a reinstatement fee of $75.00 and at least 50% of the
required tuition and fees previously assessed before the reinstallation form is processed. This
reinstatement fee will not be waived except in cases where an error was made by the University
causing the student to be dropped. In this case, the Manager of Treasury Services and or the
Controller will review the error made.
3.3 Reinstatement forms will not be processed after the reinstatement period. However, if a student
feels he/she was dropped in error, he/she must submit a written request to the Manager of
Treasury Services. The request will be reviewed and the students will be notified of the approval
or disapproval. If the request has been approved, the student will have 5 business days from the
day the student was notified of the approval to pay the necessary requirements to be reinstated.
Request for reinstatement forms are available in the Registrar’s Office and Treasury Service Office.
