Every semester a Registration Preparation Hold, Local Address Information Hold, and Emergency Contact Hold are placed on all University of Florida student accounts. These holds need to be cleared by the student before the student can access their course(s).

Please follow these instructions to clear the hold(s):

  1. Go to Student Self Service.
  2. Click onto the heading “My Record” on the top left of the Student Self Service screen.
  3. Click on “Holds”.
  4. Follow the directions to clear the Registration Preparation and Emergency Contact hold.
  5. Log out of Student Self Service completely, close your browser, and then log back in to Student Self Service to verify that the hold was successfully removed.

Immunization Holds do not apply to distance education students. The distance education registration team will ask the University of Florida registrar to have this hold removed internally. For any other holds, please contact us at
