In order to receive academic services, including some of those listed above, students and alumni must be in financial good standing and a have a university record clear of holds. The Record Office will not be able to provided certain services, including, but not limited to, transcript issuance, diploma release, and class registration (add, drop, withdrawal, and such) to students or alumni with a financial balance due or a hold of any kind on their record. Holds are based on outstanding obligations and may be financial. Examples include fines owed for traffic or parking violations, incomplete immunization records, fines owed to the Mason or consortium libraries, and other administrative holds.
Check Patriot Web (Student Services and Financial Aid/Student Records/View Holds) to view your holds. Contact the department that placed the hold on your account in order to resolve the issue.
