University Hold on Account!

Hello all, my name is Jaiden Moore and I attend North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. I have one concern regarding a hold on my account at this school, however. To provide a backstory, I originally registered for six classes (18 credit hours) for the fall 2020 semester. Every class that I originally registered for happened to be fully-online as the pandemic took over the semester. However, I quickly noticed that I might not have done well in one of the classes, so I was able to drop that class and register for a new one; but little did I know, the new class that I registered for was a hybrid class. Hybrid means that one has the choice of attending the class in person, or through zoom, and I saw no indication during registration that this class was hybrid, and was also unaware that hybrid classes were more expensive. Meanwhile, due to the pandemic I do not even attend this class in person, since I have the choice. Ultimately, I owe $700 due to the fact that I switched from a fully-online class to a hybrid class. Had I known that I would owe more money that I could not pay, I would have made sure that I found another fully-online class to register for instead!

To add to this issue, I am a senior Liberal Studies (pre-law) student, and I am set to apply to law schools in the next few weeks. Nonetheless, I cannot access my transcripts to use for letters of recommendation and applications until the hold on my account is lifted. In a normal situation, I would simply find a job to pay for my own mistake; but I simply do not have the time for a job with my 18 credit hours as I would be uncertain of the outcome of my grades had I gotten one. On top of that, I already have money saved up for my law school applications, which will easily cost me over $1000. If I pay for this $700 hold, however, I have no idea where my law school application money will come from.

I hope I did a good job in demonstrating my concern for this dilemma, and thank you all for your time and consideration!
