Failure to meet any of these requirements will result in a Health Services hold being placed on your account, which prohibits you from registering/reinstating at the university. In addition, since you are no longer an active student attending the university on a full-time basis, you are not eligible to reside on campus and will lose your housing assignment. All documents must be submitted to Health Services before a hold will be removed.
