Office of the Registrar
Chapel Hall 101
The Registrar’s Office is home to the university’s academic records. The registrar maintains student academic progress from the moment they step on campus. If a student has questions about course enrollment, grades, academic status, transfer credits, or graduation readiness, they should make an appointment.
The Registrar’s staff is responsible for the following: execution of all course registrations (on-campus, online, cross-consortium); classroom and meeting reservations; transfer credit processing; verification of articulation agreements with other universities and programs; undergraduate readmissions; transcript and diploma issuance; and maintenance of the academic calendar.
