• Office of the Registrar

  • The mission of the Office of the Registrar is to house, maintain, and protect the confidentiality of student academic record, to provide the college with accurate academic information and support services, to monitor the implementation of and adhere to College’s, and CUNY’s policies, and to comply with all Federal and State regulations pertaining to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and the rights of students.


    1. Maintain and manage registration, build semester course schedules, and student official academic records, with appropriate sensitivity to privacy and confidentiality, in compliance to the laws and regulations governing these records.
    2. Provide administrative support to students as they work towards degree completion as well as certify them for graduation in a timely manner.
    3. Assist the Academic Standing Committee, Financial Aid, and Advising by gathering data about students failing to meet the satisfactory academic progress.
