A Business Office Hold is a method used on the student account to indicate that the student must contact the Student Business Services.

A Business Office Hold will prevent the diploma from being released and prevent a student from registering for classes. Students, who are not registered for courses are not permitted to attend class sessions.  Business Office Holds can be placed for the following reasons:

Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract 
All students must complete and submit a Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract. Not submitting the Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract is the most common reason for a Business Office Hold.  The contract informs the student of their rights and responsibilities regarding payment of tuition and fees.

Student Balance 
Students who are behind on payment will be placed on a Business Office Hold. Please note, if the student’s financial aid award does not cover the entire tuition balance, the aid does not apply as an installment payment on the payment plan.

If a student is intending to use their financial aid award to pay for the tuition and fees, please confirm that all applicable aid is accepted online. For further, information regarding financial aid, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
