  • Students that have a HOLD*** within the college system will not be allowed to register for the SNAP program until the financial obligations are met by the college. If you have questions about a financial hold contact the Bursar's office.

***HOLD—A hold is when the college does not allow you to register for classes because you either owe money, do not have immunizations up to date, or have documentation missing in the system.
