What are they?

Registration holds prevent students from registering for courses. They are most often established because the student is required to meet with his or her advisor prior to registering or because the student owes money to the university. Registration holds must be resolved before a student can register online via myNKU. The student can still search for courses and place them in the registration cart, but the student must contact the office or department that placed the hold and resolve the issue before being able to register. For advising holds, the student should contact his or her academic advisor to make arrangements for clearing the advising hold. If a student has a fee-related hold, the fee must be paid before the hold will be released. Please contact the office that placed the hold for information on what steps may need to be taken in order to have the hold cleared (see chart below).
