How Do I Check for Holds on My Account?

This article covers how CSUF students can check their account for holds, also referred to as service indicators.

Please note that some holds/service indicators are informative and others require you to complete an action. In some cases, you must complete the action in order to register for classes. Be sure to read the details about each hold to determine what action, if any, you need to take.

1. Log in to the campus portal and access the Student Homepage in Titan Online.

2. The number of holds will show on the Tasks tile. Click on Tasks to view more information.

Bryant Tran

Hello. I was just checking out my tasks and saw that I had two holds on my student homepage.
One of them is a "Written Comm Plcmnt Category" hold telling me that I can register for ENGL 101 for fall or spring 2022.

Should I consult an advisor or can I just register for the class by myself?

Also, there are only a few classes left available but it only shows that 50 classes are available rather than 75. Will classes open in the future? Thank you!

Camille Johnson

Hi Bryant! The class search can only show 50 results at a time. When you scroll to the bottom of the page, there should be a "Display x More" button that will show additional sections of the class. If there are open sections, you should be able to add the class yourself. As for additional sections, only the department offering the class would know about that, so you can contact the English department to ask if they will be opening more sections.

Daniel Calderon

Hello, I currently have no holds in my tasks bar and when looking to register for classes it says there is a hold on my record, and I am unable to enroll in any classes for the upcoming fall semester. I do not know what the issue is that isn't allowing me to register and who I need to contact to clear this up.

Thanks in advance!

Camille Johnson

Hi Daniel! You can reach out to Records at [email protected] or if you're a new student, you may want to check with Admissions at

Sophia Clapp


So I was told I could apply for classes yesterday and have been trying since then. Every time I try to enroll it says there's a hold and I can't continue my enrollment. When I checked my account it says I owe money and but my balance says 0 and that I paid for everything. I'm not sure what else is holding me back from enrollment. Please let me know what else I should do. Thank you.

Lori Arthur

Hi Sophia! I would recommend reaching out to Student Business Services to find out if they have removed your hold. They can be reached at [email protected] or (657) 278-2495 or through their live chat:$ You can also reach out to Records at [email protected] to see if there is another reason you are unable to register.

Andrea Delgado

I have a hold for my AP exams from the Admissions office. Can I still register for spring 2023 or will this hold prevent me from registering?

Camille Johnson

Hi Andrea! I don't have any information about the effects of this hold. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information at

Daniela Flores

Hi, I have a hold due to a RESET course I was supposed to do back in late September. I completed it today. Will it still count as completed? Or do I need to contact someone to remove the hold on my portal?

Camille Johnson

Hi Daniela! It usually takes a business day or two for holds to be removed since someone has to go into the system and manually release the hold. I'm not familiar with the particular hold you're referring to, so if the hold is still on your portal after a couple of days, you can reach out to the department that placed it.
