Student Holds

Processing Student Holds in Banner

Many users have access to create/remove holds in Banner. To better understand how holds impact students, go to the hold type code validation table (STVHLDD) to see a list of all holds and which ones prevent students from performing an action such as registration.

To create/remove a hold on a student, go to SOAHOLD.

To create a hold, select the Hold Type. The ‘From’ date defaults to today and the ‘To’ date defaults to 12/31/2099. Enter Reason (if applicable) and Save.

The Release Indicator box is restricted to GroupID users only. This box is to never be checked unless you are logged in with a GroupID. When this indicator box is checked, only the GroupID user can deselect it in order to remove the hold.

To remove a hold, go to the ‘To’ date field and enter today’s date. Any user can remove a hold if the Release Indicator box is not checked. It is very important to maintain and update holds accordingly.

Students can check their holds in MySAIL or find contact information on a specific hold.
