Office of the Registrar

NOTICE: With the health and well-being of our students, their families, and our staff at the front of our minds, we've made the decision to close the Office of the Registrar to foot traffic until further notice. While we are physically closed, we are available for your questions via email at during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm CST). Please expect a response within 24-48 hours.

Please do not send physical mail or faxes to the Office of the Registrar until further notice. Use electronic forms and email only. Sending documents by mail or fax will severely delay processing.

Transcript production is up and running. However, if you are ordering a transcript from Sherwood Conservatory of Music or attended Columbia prior to 1984, please note that your order will be delayed slightly.

The Office of the Registrar serves the academic community by delivering enrollment, curricular, and records services with integrity, efficiency, and accuracy.
