Part Three - Clearing Registration Holds


You can register during Early Priority Registration if you clear all holds.

Holds: take care of them early!

If you are of the following majors you have a "mandatory advising" hold until you meet with your department advisor:

  • Engineering (all concentrations)
  • Chemistry & BioChemistry
  • Meteroology & Oceanography
  • Economics
  • Journalism

Other Holds

You need to look at your MySFSU [new window] site carefully to see if you have any other holds which will prevent you from registering for classes. Clear those holds in a timely manner.

Example: Jaime owes money for an overdue library book. He checks his registration time and sees he has a Financial Hold. He looks on MySFSU at his Financial Statemnt to see what obligations he has. He must pay owed fees to clear the financial hold.

Here is the a link which describes all holds and how to clear them.
