Purpose of Procedures:

To ensure that students have paid their current balance before allowing them to register or reserve a room for future semesters.

Who needs to know these Procedures:

All St. Olaf College students.


Students who have an outstanding balance will not be allowed to register or participate in room draw for the upcoming academic year.

The Student Accounts Office will place registration holds on the accounts of all students who have an outstanding balance, minus student work that has not been applied for the semester, starting in September and February. These holds will remain in place until the balance on the account is paid in full. The hold will prevent students from registering, accessing transcripts, or receiving their diploma. If a student will be receiving a loan to cover the balance owed, the Student Accounts Office must know the disbursement dates before the hold will be removed. Completing the application alone will not remove the hold.

The hold will also prevent participation in room draw. Once the outstanding balance and the $300 deposit are paid, the hold will be removed.

Removal of holds can only be done by the Student Accounts Office.
