Reporting to the provost of the university, the registrar is responsible for traditional registrar’s functions such as maintaining official academic records, administration of academic policies, advising academic leaders and faculty on academic policy questions and development, transfer articulation and evaluation, degree audits, transcript request processing and distribution, classroom scheduling, course registration, veteran’s services, processing of academic calendars, training university faculty and others on procedures and processes, monitoring of processes to ensure regulatory compliance (e.g. FERPA, etc.), and other traditional and unique areas of university records and policy administration.
