Important Information About 'Holds'

What is a hold?

A hold is an administrative action placed on your student record preventing you from receiving transcripts, registering for or dropping classes, or receiving grades.

The hold is the result of a financial, academic, or administrative obligation to the university and will remain in place until the obligation is met. Holds will be released once restitution or compliance has been met. MyBHSU these holds  prevent you from making changes to class schedules.


How would I know if I had a hold?

You can login to MyBHSU, and select 'Student', On the side menu, then under 'Student Accounts' heading, click 'Student Accounts Menu'. Click on View Holds and you will see if there are any holds on your student record. If there is a hold, it will be stated there. If there is not a hold it will state, "

No holds exist on your record."


I have a hold, what can I do to get it removed?

In 'View Holds' in Banner Self-Service, you will notice a code and perhaps some general instructions to contact your advisor, or visit with the cashiers' office. For specific information about each code and how to resolve the restriction, please refer to the list below.
