Butler uses a system of academic and financial "Holds" to insure
that tasks are handled in an appropriate order. Registration and
Records cannot remove any holds.
A Hold, or Service Indicator, can be placed on your records by
several different offices on campus. It may be only informational,
or it may prevent you from participating in certain activities or
receiving certain services. To find out more about your Holds, log
onto My.Butler.edu, click on
Self Service, and then select Student
Center. On the right, near the top, is a box titled
"Holds". It may contain "No Holds", or a list of the holds that are
currently active for you. Click on View "hold"
impacts to see what services are affected by each type of
hold. Or click on Details to see who you should
contact to remove the hold. For some holds, the
Details tell you how you can remove the hold
Some commonly used "Holds" are:
Advising Hold: For most students, an "Advising
Hold" will be placed on your records about 3 weeks before the
beginning of Registration for a new semester. Once you discuss your
academic options with your advisor, he or she will remove the hold.
If you still have an Advising Hold and you have already talked with
your advisor, you must talk to your advisor or the department head
for your major.
Verify Local Address Hold: Students who do not
live on campus must provide a local address. Once a year, they are
required to review that address and confirm that it is still
correct. Learn more: Local Address
Financial Responsibility Hold: Before you can
register, you must read a paragraph that describes the financial
responsibility that you incur when you enroll in a class. Learn
