Holds

Bursar-related holds are placed on student accounts with past-due balances to prevent the individual from engaging in a variety of University activities until satisfactory payment arrangements are made. Bursar-related holds are automatically displayed within your My LIU account once they are applied and can be summarized as follows:

Student Financials Hold

This hold is applied to student accounts with outstanding balances less than $500. It prevents the student from obtaining an official transcript, diploma, or grade mailer until the balance is paid in full. Students with this hold must pay their balance in full to obtain the documentation desired.

Account Past Due

This hold prevents students who have outstanding balances greater than or equal to $500 from engaging in all University activities, including registering for classes and participating in drop/add periods. These students also are prevented from obtaining official transcripts, diplomas, grade mailers, refunds and enrollment verifications. Students with this hold must pay their balance in full or make satisfactory payment arrangements to engage in any desired University activities.

External Collection Agency

This hold prevents students who have delinquent past-due balances that have been referred to outside collection agencies from engaging in all University activities. These students are prevented from registering for classes, gaining access to residence halls, and obtaining official transcripts, diplomas, grade mailers, refunds, and enrollment verifications. Students with this hold must make payment arrangements directly with the collection agency and can only participate in University activities once the balance has been paid in full, including any and all collection fees applied to the student’s account balance.

Returned Check

This hold prevents students from writing personal checks to the University or using the electronic check feature through the online Payment Gateway. Students are assigned this hold when they have issued three checks to the University that were returned by the bank for insufficient funds.

Refund Pending Review

This hold indicates a refund to the student is pending following a review by the campus Bursar’s office.
