Registration Holds

A registration hold is placed on your record to prevent registration. You may view your holds in My Merced. The types of holds that may appear include:

  • Financial- In most cases, financial holds may be paid in cash or by check at the Cashier's Office next to the Students First Center. They may also be paid online through MyBill.
  • Non-financial- You must clear any non-financial holds with the administrative office that imposed it.
  • Advising- In some cases, you may find that you are required to visit with an advisor, due to special circumstances or concerns about your academic performance.

A detailed list of holds is available here.
