Registration and Records

Registration Holds

Please be aware that holds may be placed on a student's records each semester to serve as a reminder to complete important procedures or provide important information to the university. These holds may prevent a student from registering for next semester's classes until the outstanding task is completed. The information below will provide an explanation regarding why a hold was placed and who a student should contact for removal.

Accept Financial Responsibility

This hold is placed on all students records each semester. The Acceptance of Financial Responsibility statement outlines a student's responsibility for paying all expenses in addition to the penalties that may be incurred by the student if the expenses are not paid in a timely manner. This hold is automatically released when the student reads and accepts the terms and conditions of the financial responsibility statement in his/her MyButler account.

Advising Hold

This hold is placed on every student's records each semester to ensure that each student meets in person with his/her academic advisor. This hold indicates that a student has not yet met with an academic advisor to discuss enrollment in courses for the following semester. A student must schedule an appointment to meet with his/her academic advisor in order to have the hold removed.

Department Requested Hold

This hold indicates that some action is required with a student's academic department; it has been placed on the student's records at the request of the department and will indicate what action must take place for the hold to be removed. A student can obtain information on how to have the hold removed by checking with his/her academic department.

Verify Local Address

This hold indicates that a student needs to verify his/her local address. A student can do so by visiting My.Butler.edu. Once a student verifies his/her local address the hold will automatically be released from the record.

In addition to holds, there are also positive service indicators which may be placed on a student's records. These service indicators are simply a way for the university to flag a record for administrative purposes. They do not prevent a student from registering for courses and do not require any action.
