Registrar's Office

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for the management and administration of registration services and the maintenance and security of the student records. Policies govern the work of the Registrar’s Office and it is the responsibility of the Registrar to enforce them.

The Office of the Registrar handles registration, withdrawal, grade reporting, graduation clearance and documentation requests.

Full-time Vs. Part-time Student Status

A Full-time Student is anyone taking a minimum of 12 credit hours or 4 or more classes during the fall or spring semesters, and 6 or more credit hours during the summer semester.

Documentation Requests

The Office of the Registrar issues copies of the following documents:

• Certificates
• Verification letters
• Visa References
• Official and Unofficial Transcripts

Institution Withdrawal

If a student discovers that they are unable to attend after registering for a semester, they may apply for a refund provided that this occurs within the established deadline. Withdrawals may take place after the refund deadline and before the withdrawal deadline. However, no monies will be refunded.

Transcripts

When a student graduates, they are given one (1) free unofficial transcript. Every transcript thereafter is subject to a processing fee.

Grade Reporting

Degree audits and grade reports are available via the web portal and may be collected at the Registrar’s Office on the published dates.

Withdrawal From A Course

If you continue to attend a course past the last day to drop (see Dropping a Course), you may withdraw from the course before the 5/8 point in the term (see Academic Schedule for specific dates) and receive a “W” grade.

Adding/Dropping A Course

You may add a course before the deadline for each term (usually the first week). Dropping a course from your schedule prior to the deadline specified on the Academic Schedule will result in No record of your enrollment in this course will appearing on your transcript. A re-assessment of your fees will occur in both instances.

Registration

All students are required to register and pay each semester. Students will not receive credit for work done unless officially registered. Students are not officially registered until they receive a computerized schedule from the Office of the Registrar.

Course Changes

After registration, students may need to change or drop a course. These changes must be accomplished within the published deadlines to avoid training and/or financial consequences.
