Financial Hold Policy 

University departments and offices place holds on registration and diplomas for students with outstanding financial obligations with Rutgers. Payments must be made on a timely basis for all services or transactions. 

As a student, it is your sole responsibility to ensure that all holds are paid in full or satisfied when due. You are responsible for all costs incurred by the university to collect such debt such as collections costs, litigation/attorney's fees, and court costs. 

Financial holds will will block a student's ability to register until payment is received in full.    

Examples of outstanding financial obligations include: 

  • Unreturned books to the library 

  • Unpaid tuition and fees 

  • Unpaid student loans 

  • Uncompleted exit counseling sessions 

  • Unpaid student health insurance premium
