Please refer the student to the appropriate department.)  Select the “Holds” you want to release and then click “Release”.
  5. You will be asked to enter a comment.  Then press “OK”.
  6. You should see a “Success” message appear and the hold’s number decrease.
  7. Your “Comment” will be viewable in the “Notes” section of the student profile.
