Account Holds

As an incoming student, you will have two holds on your UR Student account that will need to be lifted in order for you to register on your registration day:

  • Advisor hold: This hold will be lifted once you have discussed your academic plans with your College advisor. If this hold is not lifted by the day before your registration day, email your College advisor or call the College Center for Advising Services at (585) 275-2354. 
  • Registration hold: This hold will be lifted the morning of your registration day.

If you see any other holds on your UR Student account, please contact the Registrar at registrar@rochester.edu. Learn how to find holds on your account through this PDF or video tutorial.
