Why is this important?

Complex registration processes add barriers and confuse students, often discouraging them from reenrolling. The most common barriers are registration holds levied by offices to compel students to complete paperwork, pay balances, or carry out other transactions. (Student Success Playbook, Rec. 1, EAB)

What are we going to do?

WCU will conduct an audit of all registration holds and eliminate or revise those that are unnecessary, obsolete, or burdensome. Any new registration hold practices will be reviewed and approved by using WCU’s governance practices prior to implementation.
