Before You Begin

As a student at Illinois State University, your account can have Holds placed on it. A Hold on your account means that you are restricted from performing one or more actions at Illinois State University. For example, the Hold named Admissions Enrollment Block indicates that you are currently blocked from registering for classes.

To resolve a Hold, you must review it and take the appropriate action. Once the Hold is resolved, it will be removed from your account. For example, if you have a Hold on your account due to an overdue payment, you must make the required payment to have the Hold removed from your account. Holds are sometimes linked to To Do List items. By completing the item on your To Do List, it will remove the related Hold from your account. However, not all Holds are tied to To Do List items. You can view all Holds on your account and To Do List items through
