Academic Holds

Clearing Holds

As you get ready for Registration, remember to take care of any pending holds so you can register on time.

To check your holds:

  1. Login to Uconnect with your TAMIU username and password.
  2. On the My App page, click My Records and then go to Academic Records
  3. View your Holds, Holds Originator and Registration Notices. This is located on the top, right-hand side of your screen underneath your username.

Hold Originator

If your student record has a hold that keeps you from registering, note that each hold has an “originator.” The originator is the TAMIU department who placed that hold for you and is the only one that can clear or waive the hold.

Use our online directory to search for the department contact information. Call or email them for further instructions.

Once they clear/waive your hold, then you will be able to proceed with registration.
