The Office of the Registrar is at the nexus of academic affairs, student affairs, and the finance division. It has interactions and business function relations with a broad range of offices across campus. The office staff works with students, faculty, staff, the administration, and a variety of off-campus constituents. Responsibilities range from providing verification of enrollment to providing support to the University Council. However, at the core of these responsibilities is maintaining accurate records of the academic progress and accomplishments of the university's students while maintaining the privacy and security of those records.
The Office of the Registrar provides assistance to students with name changes, transient letters, enrollment certifications, registration, schedule adjustments after the drop/add period, and transcript requests. Service Representatives will respond to all in-person and telephone inquiries regarding student-related information as allowed by university, state, or federal policies.
The main office of the Office of the Registrar is located in 106 Holmes/Hunter Academic Building. The office is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the permanent academic records of enrolled students. In response to information from the deans' offices, the office processes class rolls, grade changes, grade reports, graduation rosters, and diplomas. This office also certifies veterans and qualified dependents for educational benefits.
