SJSU has the authority to withhold permission to register, receive services, materials, food or merchandise, or any combination of these, from any person owing a debt to the university. A debt is defined as an unpaid obligation of a student or former student, however incurred, arising while the debtor was a student. For students who have been recipients of Federal Perkins Student Loan funds, SJSU has the authority to withhold certain services for failure to complete a Perkins Exit Interview upon departure from SJSU.
A Record Hold is a method of implementing these restrictions.
An automatic financial hold will be placed against the student's records whenever a debt is not cleared by the payment due date.
Services that may be held include, but are not limited to:
When all due debts are cleared, the financial hold is automatically removed.
