Financial Holds

University departments and offices place "holds" on registration, diplomas, and transcripts for students with outstanding financial obligations (of one dollar or greater) with the university. Payments must be made on a timely basis for all services or transactions.

Financial holds will block a student's ability to register and will hold grades and transcripts unless payment in full is received.

Examples of outstanding financial obligations include:

  • parking fines and tickets
  • unpaid tuition and fees
  • uncompleted exit counseling sessions

All account balances not paid in full when due are the sole responsibility of the student.  You are also responsible for all costs incurred by the university to collect such debt. This may include, but is not limited to, late fees, collections costs, litigation/attorney's fees, and court costs.

An account is placed on a financial hold when payment arrangements have not been made.  Our system is set up to remove the hold within two hours of payment in full being made.  If you have paid your bill and require your hold to be released immediately please contact the customer service representatives in the Bursar Office at bursar@njit.edu.

Personal checks will not be accepted to remove holds on past due balances.
