Holds are placed on student records for various reasons and can be viewed in POUNCE.  Typically, an action is required by the student for the hold to be removed (e.g. payment, documentation, completion of a requirement, exit interviews, etc.).  Financial holds are the most common and can be placed for any amount owed to the University.  Most often, holds prevent registration, enrollment verification, transcript processing, or receipt of diploma.
