The Office of the Registrar is the official record-keeper of the University. This responsibility entails the registration processes of new, continuing, and returning students; the management of dropping and adding courses; determination of probation/suspension status of students; supervision of grade processing (rosters and grade reports); processing data (verification of receipt of transcripts and degrees earned, posting previous credit earned) for new, transfer, and returning students; preparing official and unofficial transcript requests for students.
In addition, the evaluation and posting of military and SUSLA Credit Examination credits and Incomplete grade and grade changes; data input (GPA update, Letters of Good Standing) on returning and Summer Only students; entering transfer credit for transfer students; processing address changes, curriculum changes, name and social security name changes, and resignations are all responsibilities charged to the Registrar's Office.
This office also has the responsibility of checking out undergraduate students for graduation, compiling the graduation list for graduating students each commencement, ordering diplomas, and determining academic honors. The management of classroom designation usage, the publication of the Schedule of Classes for each enrollment period, and the management of the International Student/Veterans Affairs Office are also responsibilities of the Registrar.
As the only official "Office of Records" for students pursuing degrees at SUSLA, the University Registrar's Office has an important mission in the operation of the University. The office has the responsibility to maintain timely and accurate records of the academic progress and accomplishments of its students, while maintaining the privacy and security of those records. Most importantly, the office places service to students, faculty, and alumni first among its priorities, recognizing these persons as the office's primary constituency.
