Registration Holds

If you have any holds on your account that prevent you from registering for courses, you will receive an message stating that you cannot register. Holds must be resolved before you can register for courses. The type of hold will be specified in the message:

  • If you have an advising hold, then you will need to contact your advisor before you register for classes.
  • If you have a Business Office hold, then you will need to contact the Business Office to resolve your account issues prior to registering for classes.
  • If you have a hold from another office, such as Student Support Services, then you will need to contact the office referred to in the hold before you proceed with registration.

Click HERE to open Union College's Departments and Services page, where you will find a list of links to departmental contact information.

If you do not have any holds, you can proceed with course registration as long as the add/drop period is open.  The add/drop period status for the selected term is displayed below the current term drop-down menu on the Course Search page. Here you may also see how many hours you are registered for in the selected term, as pictured below.
