What We Do

The operations conducted in the Office of the University Registrar are compiled into five large categories: the maintenance of students’ permanent academic records; the support of enrollment and registration processes and systems; the coordination of course and classroom scheduling; the administration and application of academic policies; and information management, data analysis and reporting.

  • Academic Records Maintenance: We are entrusted with the secure and confidential maintenance of students' permanent academic records. We are here to assist with transcript requests, enrollment certifications and degree verifications, transfer credit, university ID cards, residency reclassification, veterans and athlete certifications, degree audits, diplomas, and more.
  • Enrollment & Registration Services: We oversee processes and systems that support course registration, schedule adjustment, registration for special populations, cancellation of registration, and withdrawal from the university.
  • Course & Classroom Scheduling: We publish the Schedule of Classes for each semester/term and coordinate the scheduling of courses, classrooms, and final exams.
