Common Registration Holds
Below are some common holds that prevent registration. We encourage you to resolve any registration holds quickly so you can register on time and to secure the schedule you want. You can view all holds in your myUTSA Account.
Students who have an admission hold often have it due to missing official transcripts (final high school or college/university transcripts). myUTSA Account will provide more information on the type of outstanding document(s), so you can turn it in as quickly as possible to One Stop.
All first-time undergraduate students (freshmen, freshmen-transfers, and transfers) must complete orientation before they can register. You can sign up for orientation through myUTSA Account. Once you have completed orientation, the hold will be removed. For more information, visit https://future.utsa.edu/orientation.
