Important Academic Reminders:

Right Now:

  • The online graduation application is available for Fall (December) 2016, Spring (May) 2017, and Summer (August) 2017 graduations.  Students will have to pre-pay the graduation application fee – with a credit or debit card – when they submit their application.  More info about the process is here.
  • Remember that past-due balances of more than $200 will result in you getting a "Bursar Reg" hold.  Having such a hold will prevent registration.
  • Newly-admitted students can now contract online with University Housing.  You may have to wait a day after you have been admitted and have gotten your Network ID before you will be able to successfully log into Housing's system.

Late Summer 2016 / Early Fall 2016:

  • Registration for Fall 2016 classes continues.
  • Most Summer 2016 grades should be posted, and GPA and academic standing calculated, within SalukiNet by Wednesday evening, August 10, though some off-campus (and Law) course grades will not be posted until later.
  • If you see an NR grade as one of your grades, that means that the instructor did not submit your grade by the deadline and will have to submit it later.  Such late grade submissions will also result in a recalculation of your GPA and your academic standing.
  • Students up for Summer graduation, you now can monitor the status of your graduation application – to see if your degree has been awarded and if your diploma has been mailed – in a new channel within SalukiNet.

What We Do:

The Registrar's Office provides administrative services and academic support to currently enrolled students and the campus community, as well as to prospective and former students.  We are located in room 0251 of the Student Services Building.

The primary goals of the Registrar's Office are to assist students in the registration process, assess tuition and fees, monitor students' academic progress, and determine eligibility for degree.  The Registrar's Office also provides many specialized services for students such as transcript distribution, enrollment verification, and withdrawal.

For the academic units, the Registrar's Office oversees all general classroom space assignments, coordinates faculty and staff access to the Banner Student Information System, and identifies the students to be recognized for University-wide high scholastic achievement (such as Deans List and Honors Day).

The organization of the Registrar's Office is shown here.
