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
