The Cashier’s Office puts holds on accounts that are either delinquent (appearing as DEL in PASS) or need Terms and Conditions forms completed (REG2). Once your account is paid in full, the delinquent account hold can be removed by the Cashier’s Office. Once you complete your Terms and Conditions form, that hold will be removed automatically.

While these are two common examples, there are other holds that can prevent registration, such as an issue with your transcript, textbook pickup, and others. Some of these holds are placed by departments other than the Cashier’s Office. Please check with the department that placed that hold on your account in order to resolve it.
