Registration

Registration Holds

Students often have registration holds on their accounts which will prevent adds and drops. Holds can only be removed by the office that originally placed the hold. Students should contact the appropriate offices to have holds removed or bumped to a future date.

To check your holds, log in to Raiderlink using your eRaider username and password. Navigate to the TTU MyTech tab. Under the Manage My Enrollment header, select Registration. Select Registration Status (Dates & Holds). If you have a hold that will prevent registration, please contact the department that issued the hold to find out how to remove it.

If you receive an error concerning a Time Ticket, please contact your assigned advisor for assistance.

Common Registration Holds

Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

All students attending college in the state of Texas, including students taking courses at a satellite campus or online, must meet the state requirements for TSI. Students with a TSI hold must take the Accuplacer test or submit the appropriate SAT/ACT/TAKS/STARR scores to the TSI compliance office. Students who are not able to take the placement exam on Lubbock campus will need to make arrangements with the TSI Compliance Office to take the test locally at an approved location. Students who are not TSI complete must enroll in the appropriate TSI course as specified by the TSI Compliance Office.
