Dear FAU Student,

If you have a registration hold on your account, please contact the department that has placed the hold on your account. If you do not have the department's telephone number, you can retrieve it on-line or you can call 561-297-3000, Florida Atlantic University's main line, and follow the automated prompts.

Please review all pertinent payment information by visiting this link:  

If your account has a Controller's Office hold, please review your account balance information on-line through MyFAU, your on-line portal: Click on FAU Self-Service (OWLS) (on the left side); then Student Services; Student Account; Account Summary by Term; Pay Now button (lower bottom left side). This takes you into the payment gateway, which offers you several options. Please navigate the available options to familiarize yourself with the enhanced features and select your preferred payment method.

If you are making an on-line payment, please follow the directions that are given. Once you have made the payment, please allow several minutes for the information to upload; the Controller's Office holds will automatically be lifted and you can proceed to registration.

Although you may advance register for the Fall term, the account balance would reflect the rates of the previous academic year.

If you would like to provide other individuals with on-line access to your financial account information, please click on the AUTHORIZED USERS tab on the top toolbar after you have entered the payment gateway. Please follow the directions to enable the Authorized Users’ access feature.
