Important Deadlines

We are a service organization offering a wide range of academic and administrative services associated with records, course registration, advising, graduation services, academic space management and scheduling for students, faculty, and staff. The Registrar's Office also maintains the academic calendar and publishes the colleges' course catalogue.

The Office serves as a repository of faculty information and schedules, course enrollments, course offerings, student records, grades and degrees conferred. Such records are maintained using information systems and web-services designed to enable students, academic advisers, staff, departments and programs to conduct their professional duties in a decentralized environment.
