Office of the Registrar

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) guidelines, the Office of the Registrar does not provide confidential information pertaining to students without a written consent from a student. This is done by completing the Consent Form and returning it to the Office of The Registrar.

Once we have received this information, we will comply with your request. For additional details regarding FERPA, vist the the ECSU FERPA page.

Academic Advisement & Pre-Registration

All continuing students are required to participate in the "Pre-Registration" process. Pre-registration affords all enrolled students the opportunity of selecting courses early. Pre-registration requires a student to select courses and take care of tuition and fees, and any other financial obligations to the University, during a designated time period. Failure to pre-register for the fall or spring semester will result in a $100.00 assessment fee being added to your account.
