What is a registrar?

A registrar is the administrator at a college or university that is responsible for maintaining student records. He or she will assist students with requests such as registering for classes or obtaining transcripts. They also schedule classes for the institution and keep permanent records of course grades and class lists.

The left and right menus will have important links that you may need throughout your college education, and perhaps even after you have left the University.

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office directly.
