Course Search & Enroll - "The hold must be removed before you can enroll" Error

This document explains the meaning of the "The hold must be removed before you can enroll" error message and how it can be resolved.

What it means:

Image of error stating, 'Course enrollment failed: You were not enrolled. The hold must be removed before you can enroll. Go to Student Center in MyUW to view your holds.'

A hold is a temporary status connected to your student records, placed by a campus unit (academic department, library, Bursar’s Office, etc.) that wants to alert you of an action you need to take (meet with an advisor, pay a library fine, pay your tuition, etc.).

Some kinds of holds will prevent you from changing your class schedule, including enrolling in or dropping classes, until the hold is cleared.

What to do:

Find out what the hold is by checking Student Center.

Follow the instructions in Student Center to resolve the reason for the hold. Then, contact the campus unit that placed the hold, to confirm that they have cleared the hold for you.

After any enrollment-related holds are cleared, you can enroll in classes. Remember to check for any holds before enrolling for future terms!
