Division of Academic Affairs

Office of the Registrar

Welcome to the Office of

The Registrar

The major responsibility of the Office of the Registrar is to maintain accurate records of all students and to guard, interpret, and implement University regulations governing academic affairs. This office is also responsible for assisting all students from the time they enter the University, until and after they graduate or are no longer enrolled. 

More specifically, the Office of the Registrar must keep the scholastic records of all students in each department up-to-date. Methods, procedures, and policies must be constantly evaluated as it relates to their ability to meet the demands of the University.

The Office of the Registrar is supervised by the Department of Enrollment Management and as such, has a unique responsibility to the Division and the University.
