Holds

Holds are restrictions placed on a record that prevent account holders from:

  • Accessing final grades;
  • Adding courses
  • Dropping courses using LORIS 
    *For information on dropping a course with a hold, please visit Registration FAQ.
  • Registering in a future term;
  • Graduating;
  • Verifying your enrolment; and
  • Receiving transcripts.

Financial holds are typically the most common hold type and are applied when a student has failed to pay tuition and fees by the invoice deadline. Fees can be paid through online banking, but hold removal will only take place when the funds arrive at Laurier (approximately two to three business days). Overdue accounts may be referred to a collection agency.

Other holds can be issued by your faculty or other campus partners (parking, athletics, wellness center, etc.) for fees or materials owing and will need to be paid or addressed by reaching out to them directly.

Holds can be viewed by logging into LORIS > Student Services > Student Records > View Holds.
