Registration holds may be placed on a student's account for a variety of reasons, and the student will not be allowed to register for classes until this hold is removed. You can determine the nature of the hold by logging onto Bronco Direct.
All undergraduate students with a Cal Poly GPA < 2.2 or an overall GPA < 2.2 will automatically have a registration hold every quarter until their GPA rises above 2.2. Also, a hold is placed on all civil engineering students once per year, regardless of GPA. In order to remove these holds, please see your academic advisor.
Holds placed outside of civil engineeing need to be resolved at the location stated on Bronco Direct. For example, if you hve a cashier's hold, it can only be resolved by the cashier's office.
