The Office of the University Registrar (OUR) is a learner-centered, shared service organization that is responsible for the management of registration and the stewardship of academic records – past, present, and future.

To achieve this mission, we:

Provide learners with accurate and comprehensive records of their educational experiences under the University’s purview and authority, as reflected in transcripts, paper and digital diplomas, certificates or other forms of representation, enrollment and degree verifications, and other credentials documenting student work.

Observe the common academic calendar, and publish the annual web-based Catalog that describes academic offerings and learning opportunities along with the attendant policies of the University. We oversee course scheduling, curriculum management, registration, grading and auditing systems and structures that contribute to recording learning, academic achievement, degree and program progress and completion.

Contribute to the development, governance and use of systems and applications that collect, manipulate, distribute and report data involving participation and completion in academic programs and other learning opportunities. We supply those data to appropriate investigators for continuous improvement in program quality and design, to cognizant regulators and authorities, and to approved stakeholders and constituencies of the University, including certifying agencies such as Veterans Affairs and the NCAA.

Administer and protect the privacy of our learners and the confidentiality of their records per the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), and the European Union General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR). We strive to provide best-of-class services utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology to make the experience of students, staff, and faculty, more intuitive and seamless in accordance to their expectations.
