The Registrar’s Office oversees records (including transcripts and bar exam certifications), registration, policies, exams, and course schedules for faculty, staff, students, and external stakeholders. Our office heavily assists in academic advising and exam administration. We play an active role in the acquisition of textbook information for each course. The objective of the Registrar’s office is to provide accurate information, efficient processes, and clear policies necessary for helping students succeed.
