The University can disallow you to register for the next term's classes for a variety of reasons - e.g., failure to pay fees or to comply with a university requirement. The process of disallowing you to register for classes is called "a hold." The specific department responsible for monitoring compliance with the policies it enforces determines whether a hold is appropriate. A student may therefore have holds placed by multiple departments if he/she is non-compliant in more than one area. Fortunately, holds can be removed quickly once you have documented that you are in compliance.

SHS is responsible for monitoring student compliance with health policies. If you fail to provide SHS with a completed health history form, proof of required immunizations or completed TB testing (if required) before the designated pre-registration period for next term's classes, SHS will enter a code into the Student Information System that will prevent you from registering. You can monitor your holds via the Student Online Services > Student Records > View Holds. Should this happen to you, call the Immunization Helpline (541-737-7573) or come directly to SHS to find out why we have placed the hold and what you must do to have it removed.

Why won't the Student Information System tell me why SHS has placed a hold on my registration?

All medical information about you is strictly confidential. Since the Student Information System is open, SHS cannot place confidential material into it and risk the possibility that someone other than you could access the information.
