Office of the Registrar Mission
The purpose of the IUPUI Office of the Registrar is to support the instructional mission of IUPUI as well as, to a lesser extent, the missions of research and civic engagement. This is accomplished by serving the needs of faculty, staff, students, alumni and the general public in accordance with academic policies and procedures set forth by the federal government, accrediting agencies, Indiana University Board of Trustees, University faculty, and the IUPUI faculty. We insure the integrity, confidentiality, and security of all education records as defined and protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
The Office of the Registrar is dedicated to providing timely, accurate, and efficient enrollment and records maintenance services in support of all credit instruction at IUPUI. We continually strive to improve our services related to course scheduling, space assignment, student enrollment, grade processing, maintaining student demographic records, managing an automated degree progress system, publishing the campus bulletin, official enrollment certification, transcript production, degree processing and statistical/ad hoc reporting.
Office of the Registrar Vision
The Office of the Registrar commitment is to excellence in achieving the IUPUI mission of teaching and learning, research and creative activity and civic engagement. To accomplish this, we work closely and with a collaborative spirit with all University departments based on principles of, responsiveness, accountability, efficiency and good stewardship. In this partnership, we make available continuously improving services through a dedicated and skilled staff assisting in the enhancement of both student information systems and services.
The Office of the Registrar is committed to challenging ourselves to ever-increasing levels of efficiency and effectiveness in our work, seeking improvements in systems and practices for ourselves and for those we serve. We maintain an environment in the office and on campus that encourages growth, stimulates creativity, supports academics and engagement, respects people and differences, and promotes communications and participation throughout all areas of the University.
The Office of the Registrar services are the infrastructure of student enrollment and faculty academic performance record keeping at the institution. As such, we strive not to be in the spotlight but, instead, quietly and diligently doing our jobs to make sure all of the services we provide run smoothly and with little thought or concern from those we serve. We continually strive to think creatively, to be responsive, to act respectfully and to improve services. We receive our satisfaction from assuring integrity, accuracy, timeliness and a consistently excellent service philosophy.
How can we make things better?
What does the Registrar's Office do?
The Registrar's Office provides services to faculty and to students from the time a student is admitted through "graduation and beyond." The office maintains and publishes the campus schedule of course offerings each term, manages the registration and enrollment processes each semester, and coordinates the publication of the online IUPUI All Campus Bulletin. Registrar staff assist with all of the changes that occur during a student's career including but not limited to changes of residency for fee-paying, school/major, names, addresses, updates to enrollment status, and reinstatement of enrollment at the institution.
It is the Office of the Registrar that assigns registration appointments, coordinates enrollment activities, manages a degree progress system, and oversees faculty grade roster creation/ dissemination to the academic units, and grade collection so that students may see grades in SIS through One.IU and request transcripts that include final semester grades. The Office of the Registrar also certifies enrollment status for loan deferment and insurance purposes and accepts and processes all transcript requests from current and former students. When students approach graduation, the Registrar's Office works closely with each academic unit to certify degree requirements have been met, orders diplomas and supports commencement activities.
