Office of the Registrar

The Office of the Registrar (OTR) manages all aspects of current and historical student academic records. As stewards of the University’s academic records, we ensure accuracy and integrity, protect student data, and enforce the standards set by University policies and procedures, and state and federal laws.

OTR is made up of four teams: academic records, imaging and files, graduate education records, and quality assurance. Each serve as a resource for students, faculty, and staff.
