A hold prevents students from accessing a university service such as registration or access to transcripts. An action is required by the student to have the hold released. Many OSU departments, including the Office of the Registrar, are able to apply a hold on certain services. You can find more information below on holds placed by the Office of the Registrar and links to other main offices that place holds.
