Financial Holds—All Students
Financial holds will be placed on accounts which have unpaid balances. These holds will prevent students from registering for spring semester classes. Students enrolled in tuition payment plans should make sure their accounts are current. Financial aid recipients should review aid packages at financialaid.rutgers.edu to make sure all aid has credited. Students can view the balances of accounts here.

Flu Vaccine Clinic for Students
Getting an annual flu shot is the most effective way to prevent the flu. Since the strain of the flu virus changes every year, annual vaccines are needed. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against the flu, so make plans to get vaccinated early in the fall, before flu season begins. View the Flu Vaccine Clinic Schedule here.
