The Office of the University Registrar maintains the academic records of all Washington University students and is the principal custodian of the university’s Student Information System.

Located in the heart of the Danforth Campus in the historic Ann W. Olin Women’s Building, the Office of the University Registrar provides all fundamental credentialing services for Danforth Campus students including academic transcripts, diplomas, and the verification of enrollment and degrees. Similar services for students and alumni of the Washington University School of Medicine are available through the registrar’s office at the medical school.

The various programs of study at Washington University are administered by seven schools: Arts & Sciences, the John M. Olin School of Business, the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, Engineering & Applied Science, Law, Medicine, and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work. Within the schools are various divisions of undergraduate and graduate study. The “day school” divisions at WUSTL represent traditional full-time programs. Evening and part-time divisions are offered in the schools of Arts & Sciences (the University College), Business, and Engineering & Applied Science. Enrollment and statistical reporting at the university typically reflects these divisions.

The Student Information Systems at Washington University include both student data and course data. Together with the Office of the Provost, the Office of the University Registrar maintains statistical data for the university on all student enrollment and academic programs. The office also coordinates academic scheduling and is significantly involved in facilitating the management of classrooms across the Danforth Campus.

The student record data maintained by Washington University is highly confidential. Access to this information is defined in accordance with the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and university policy.
