Office of the Registrar

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


In response to COVID-19, our physical office is closed.  However, our phone lines are open from 9am-3pm. We are currently working to ensure all services are available virtually and will post updates on our website to describe any changes to processes that were previously completed in-person. 

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

We will make every effort to get back to you in a timely fashion. Thank you for your cooperation during this difficult time.
