Student Account Holds

Holds are placed on your student account to provide you with information about possible restrictions to college services such as registering for courses and receiving a diploma.

If you have a hold on your account placed by a department other than the Cashier's Office, please contact that department directly.  We cannot release holds placed by other departments.​  

To View Your Hold:
  • Select Student tab
  • Select Student Records
  • View Pre-Registration Requirements and Holds
  • A Bookstore Hold is the result of an outstanding balance at the Campus Bookstore.  The Cashiers Office can not clear this hold until the debt has been settled with the Campus Bookstore directly.  This hold will restrict a student from future registrations, access to transcripts and from receiving a Diploma.

    Contact the Bookstore at (805) 730-4047 / bookstore@sbcc.edu

  • Financial and Outstanding Balance Holds -  If you have a financial hold due to a fine, fee or penalty, or have an outstanding balance, you can resolve it by paying the balance in full. Log in to Pipeline to make payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover or, visit the Cashier's Office to pay your debt. Holds will automatically release within 30 minutes of payment processing.

  • Collection Hold -  SBCC works with First Financial Resources. If your debt has been passed on to a collection agency, you must contact the agency directly for resolution. They will provide you an opportunity to pay in full or to make installment payments. Students must request a payment confirmation email be sent to cashiers@sbcc.edu for a release of your student account hold.  Confirmations are received within 2-3 business days.
