Registration Holds
The University can disallow you to register for the next term’s classes for a variety of reasons -e.g., failure to pay fees or to comply with a University requirement. The process of disallowing you to register for classes is called "a hold." The specific department responsible for monitoring compliance with the policies it enforces determines whether a hold is appropriate. A student may therefore have holds placed by multiple departments if he/she is non-compliant in more than one area. Fortunately, holds can be removed quickly once you have documented that you are in compliance.

The SHC is responsible for monitoring student compliance with health policies. If you fail to provide SHC with documentation of required immunizations before the designated pre-registration period for next term’s classes, the SHC will enter a code into the People Soft System that will prevent you from registering. The computer will inform you that you have a hold placed by the SHC. Should this happen to you, call the Student Health Center at 858-3371, or come directly to the SHC to find out why we have placed the hold and what you must do to have it removed.

Exemptions to Immunizations
According to the NDUS policy, students enrolled only in distance learning courses, courses taught off campus, continuing education or noncredit courses, and students in attendance at camps, workshops or programs and classes delivered under contract to a third party are exempt from this policy. Campuses shall grant additional exemptions upon application to and approval by the authorized institution official, under established campus procedures, when: (a) immunization is contraindicated by illness, pregnancy, allergies, or other medical condition certified by a licensed physician; (b) the student has had one immunization and agrees to have a second one no less than one month later; or (c) the student’s beliefs preclude participation in an immunization program.
