Holds on Registration and Release of Records

The university reserves the right to place holds on student records when obligations to the university have not been met. Obligations may include, but are not limited to, academic advising, outstanding account balances, incomplete admissions documentation, library fines, parking fines, etc.  Holds may restrict a student's ability to register for courses, obtain transcripts, obtain a diploma, and/or other university-related activities. 

Financial Obligation for Graduating Students

According to Texas Education Code § 54.007 (c), all financial obligations to the university must be paid by the end of the semester. Failure to settle all financial obligations may result in withholding a student’s diploma at graduation. Additionally, a hold may be placed on the student’s account that would prohibit registration in subsequent semesters and receipt of official transcripts. 


  • Texas Education Code § 54.007 (c) states “A student who fails to make payment prior to the end of the semester may be denied credit for the work done that semester.”
