  • issue official transcripts
  • award degrees
  • certify enrollment and degrees
  • handle subpoenas and other court documents concerning student records

The Office of the Registrar has the responsibility to maintain timely and accurate records of the academic progress and accomplishments of its students while maintaining the privacy and security of those records.

    The Office of the Registrar has six Academic Records Coordinators (an "ARC") dedicated to each College and School. These are the primary contacts for both students and Associate Deans' Offices when it concerns a degree audit (adjustments, exceptions, waivers, etc.), as well as processing changes of major/minor/concentrations. If you have process questions about your degree audit or your degree program in general, please contact your College's ARC below.

    Please note that the ARCs do not offer academic advising; they ensure that the necessary documentation and processing are correct.
