The registrar’s function is to organize, manage, and maintain the information that constitutes the lifeblood of  the College. Students, courses, and the grades received in those courses come together at the beginning of each semester, as students register for courses, and so the term “registrar” arose.

Some of the most commonly requested services needed by past or present students are enrollment verification, transcript requests, and assessment of advanced credit. The office is also responsible for the academic calendar, each semester’s course schedule, the final exam schedule, and graduation applications.

The Registrar’s Office is located on the first floor of Stowe Hall (Room 101), open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you have any additional questions or need information not provided here, please contact us at:

Fall 2014 registration

Fall 2014 registration will begin on Tuesday, April 22nd for current juniors and seniors. On April 23rd current sophomores will register, and on April 24th current freshmen will register.

In order to be able to register online every student is required to meet with his/her advisor. Online registration authorization for each student will occur after or during the advisor meeting. If you are unsure of your advisor assignment please log on to Self-Service.

Some important tips as you plan for fall and summer registration:

  1. Registration Stops: Every students should log on to Self-Service to make sure he/she does not have any stop/holds on his/her account. Registration will not open for students who have holds, so if you encounter a hold you should work to clear it up prior to registration.
  2. Transfer of Credits: Approval for transfer credits must occur prior to taking the class to ensure transferability. In general, unless there are extenuating circumstances, only elective credits will be approved for off-campus study. It is also important to note that the last thirty credits of the degree are required to be taken on campus. The application to request transfer of credits may be found in the Registrar’s Office (Stowe, room 101) and on Self-Service under “Registrar’s Office Forms.”
  3. Summer School: Summer school provides a great opportunity to catch up on credits if you withdrew or failed a class. Summer school is also a good tool for getting ahead and lightening your regular semester load. The summer school schedule and information about registering are located at
  4. Online Registration: Online registration for each class will open at 8 a.m. on the days listed above. Please be sure you have met with your advisor prior to the date for your registration period. Keep in mind the college will be closed for the Easter holiday from April 17-April 21.
