About Registration and Records
The Registration and Records office plays a key role in supporting the mission and goals of Elizabethtown College. We provide leadership for the College in interpreting academic policies and ensuring that all academic policies and requirements are applied consistently and fairly across all students. The work of our office helps ensure that the Elizabethtown College degree has integrity and is a source of pride for all who earn it. In working with students, we believe it is important for them to assume ownership and responsibility for their education. In addition, we are committed to maintaining the integrity, accuracy, and privacy of all academic records. In doing so, we follow professional standards as well as federal policy, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Specific activities of our office include:
- Maintaining permanent academic records of all officially enrolled students, including transcripts
- Publishing Academic Calendars and Important Dates for each academic year
- Preparing and publishing Final Examination Schedules
- Conducting course registration for fall, winter, spring, and summer semesters
- Overseeing all aspects of the graduation ceremony, including issuing diplomas
