The Office of the Registrar (the Office) is the official record keeper of the College, maintaining a file on every student who ever attended King's College from 1946 to the present.
The Office is responsible for coordinating the myriad details that keep King's academic programs on track, including developing the final exam schedule, reporting grades at the end of each term and subsequent reports based on semester grades. The Registrar's Office sets up the computer parameters that enable this detailed monitoring, making it possible for students to register for courses via their WebAdvisor accounts and to maintain accurate files on all current students. The Office offers a critical service to transfer students as well by evaluating transcripts from other colleges and universities to determine how and if credits from those schools will transfer into King's College.
The monitoring of each student's progress toward graduation is managed by the Registrar's Office through the use of the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) for all academic degrees and minors. This process includes printing DARS reports and sending them to academic advisors to assist in the academic advisement process prior to the start of registration for each semester. These tools allow the Office to determine a student's eligibility for graduation and in turn help coordinate all the details associated with graduation, such as ordering diplomas, caps and gowns, flowers, procession order of students and faculty into and from the Arena for Commencement.
Other notable responsibilities include updating the academic calendar, which involves detailed communication with offices and departments across the college, as well as working with Wilkes University and Misercordia University to coordinate schedule to avoid conflicts in the use of shared facilities. The Office also is responsible for preparing and publishing the college catalog and updating as needed throughout the year.
