Holds on Student Records and Fines

Holds on Student Records

A hold will be placed on a student’s record by the Business Office for fees and any other financial obligations owed to Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and/or Skyline College. Educational records will not be released, including grades, transcripts, certificates, enrollment verifications, and degrees, while an outstanding balance remains on their account.

  • Please note: Effective January 1, 2020 transcripts will no longer be held for outstanding balances.


Fines are assessed for failure to comply promptly with library and other campus regulations, and students are required to pay for careless or unnecessary damage to College property. Students delinquent in their financial obligations to the College may not receive unofficial/official transcripts, enrollment verifications, or degrees/certificates until such delinquencies have been adjusted to the satisfaction of the college authorities.
