Due to mandatory state requirements, we have had to greatly reduce the number of persons that can physically be in the University Registrar’s Office and in the hallway outside of the University Registrar and Bursar Offices at one time.  This will impact the number of students that we are able to assist in person.

Some members of the University Registrar’s Office will be working in the office while other staff members will be working remotely. In an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible and to better serve all students, faculty and staff, we ask that, if you are able to, please contact us using the information provided below that also outlines the various services we provide to students, faculty and staff. This will help reduce the number of persons in our office at a given time, reducing unnecessary exposure. This will also help reduce the time you may spend waiting for someone to assist you in person.
