Accounts Holds


A "Hold" prevents a student from registering, dropping, or withdrawing from courses.  University regulations have enforced the setting of a threshold of $1,000 for the placement of Holds for any accounts with an overdue balance. A Hold may be temporarily suspended for the purpose of taking registration action on courses (withdrawals) in the current semester. An affected student should contact the Office of the Bursar/Student Accounts. Please note, any inactive students who have balances remaining of $5 or more will be sent to a collection agency if the debt is not paid to FSU.  In attempting to collect overdue account charges, the University will adhere to all applicable federal and state laws and current policies of the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education and the Office of the Comptroller.

Failure to pay your balance by the semester's due date may result in your outstanding balance being sent to collections, late fees and an account hold (denied access to course registration and transcripts).
