Administrative Hold in My UW

The most common reasons for an administrative hold in My UW are:

Document Not Picked Up

ISS will place an administrative hold in My UW when a student has not picked up a document after multiple email notices have been sent to the student’s UW email address.

Incomplete check-in

Missing or Invalid Contact Information

International students (F-1 and J-1) are required by law to keep their current contact information on file with their school. Check the format of your local address in My UW using the U. S. Postal Service’s website (https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction!input.action) and make sure we have a phone number in your local address in My UW.
