Account Holds

There are several types of holds that can be assessed to your account. Students with unpaid financial obligations such as Tuition and Fees, Parking fines, Health Center fees, Residential Life room damage charges, lost SunyCard charges, and Library fines will have a financial hold placed on their account.  Additionally, holds can be placed for non-financial reasons.

Holds can prevent access to University services including registration for current and future term classes, transcripts, and diplomas. 

Please pay invoices by expected due dates to prevent financial holds.  Balances must be paid in full for financial holds to be removed.  Your hold will be removed automatically before the next business day after you pay your balance in full.

You should view your MyUAlbany account and specifically the section titled “Important Notices” to obtain more detailed information about any holds you may have.
