The Registrar's Office maintains the integrity, accuracy, and appropriate confidentiality of academic records of the University. We support the goals of students, alumni, faculty, and staff in matters pertaining to registration, transcripts, academic calendars, academic policy, the catalog, enrollment and degree verifications, and course scheduling.

We're guided by the ethical standards and policies of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. All release of student information is guided by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended (FERPA).
