Holds you may have

Bay College may place a warning message or hold on a student’s record for a variety of reasons. A warning message does not prevent registration but indicate that a student must resolve a concern related to their record.  A hold indicates that records cannot be released or a registration cannot be processed until the reason for the hold is resolved.

 

Types of "holds" include:

  1. Academic Warning/Hold: a warning message or hold may be placed at the request of the Registrar blocking registration of a student for failure to maintain the standards outlined in the standards of academic progress.
  2. Financial Hold: a hold may be placed at the request of the Student Accounts Office blocking registration of a student or the release of transcripts when the student has failed to discharge their financial obligations to the college. You will want to contact the Student Accounts Office at (906) 217-4062 or Cashier@baycollege.edu.
  3. Library Resource Hold: a hold may be placed by the library blocking registration of a student who has failed to return a library resource or who has failed to pay fines or charges owed to the library. You will want to contact the library about this hold at (906) 217-4055 or libraryhelo@baycollege.edu.
  4. Registration Hold: a hold may be placed on a student’s record for a variety of reasons. Students must contact the Records & Registration Office to resolve the cause for the hold at (906) 217-4129 or registration@baycollege.edu.
  5. Declare Major Warning: A warning message is placed on records for students who have graduated and are continuing to take classes but have not declared a new major. Students may register for classes, but they cannot be assigned an academic advisor and their financial aid may be affected. Students must contact the Registrar to resolve the issue or fill out a change of major form located on myBay: Home> Under Quick links to common tasks> Change of Major.
