Records Holds


SJSU has the authority to withhold permission to register, receive services, materials, food or merchandise, or any combination of these, from any person owing a debt to the university. A debt is defined as an unpaid obligation of a student or former student, however incurred, arising while the debtor was a student. For students who have been recipients of Federal Perkins Loan funds, SJSU has the authority to withhold certain services for failure to complete a Perkins Exit Interview upon departure from SJSU.

A Record Hold is a method of implementing these restrictions or for a past due amount of the Federal Perkins Loan.

An automatic financial hold will be placed against the student’s records whenever a student has a past due balance with the University. Read more about Assembly Bill-1313 Higher Education: prohibited debt collection practices.

Services that may be held include, but are not limited to:

  • Registration
  • Grades
  • Diploma

When all due debts are cleared, the financial hold will be removed.
