Student Handbook

Record Holds

A student’s record may be placed on hold because of financial, academic, immunization forms or other obligations to the university. A hold will prevent the release of the student’s registration, grades, or transcripts until the student clears the obligation and the office that placed the hold removes the hold.

Each time that you enter myUCF at, the “Welcome” screen will list each of your current holds, the services that will be unavailable to you until you satisfy the hold requirements, and contact information for the office that has placed the hold. Students are strongly encouraged to work with the associated offices to resolve all holds before their registration and add/drop appointment times.

Nondegree-seeking students who are enrolled in nine or more graduate credit hours will have their records placed on a nine-hour hold. The reason for this hold is to inform you of the UCF graduate enrollment policy. If it is your intention to seek a graduate degree, you must Apply Online and be admitted to a specific graduate program.

Please visit the UCF College of Graduate Studies (Millican Hall 230) or your college/graduate program office to sign a Nine-Hour Hold Release Form.
