The Office of the Registrar

The mission of the Office of Registration Services is to provide timely service to its constituents.  The services include maintaining accurate academic records including course offerings, registration records, grades, progress towards degrees and the completion of degree requirements.  In addition, our office is the custodian of student data and as such is responsible for the accuracy of this data.  We are responsible for the implemention of the university’s academic policies in regard to the integrity of the degrees offered by William Paterson University.

We accomplish this mission by striving towards excellence, challenging ourselves to be efficient and effective, seeking out new and better ways of doing business and creating an environment in the office and on the campus which encourages growth, supports academics, respects people and differences, and promotes communication and participation.
