The Office of the Registrar provides an important link between the academic policies of CSUSM and our academic departments and students.  What is a registrar? A university registrar maintains the academic records of all registered students by providing services including:

  • Verifying student status
  • Confirming graduation and issuing diplomas
  • Providing transcripts
  • Providing enrollment periods to students to enroll in classes


We're open virtually! 

If you have questions that are not answered on the website, you can reach us at 

Phone Hours

Notice: The Cougar Central Office (3700 Craven Hall) is currently closed for in-person services. Updates will be posted here when campus protocol allows for the office to be open.
