Office of the Registrar
The Office of the Registrar provides timely and courteous service to university students, the university community, and external agencies. The office is responsible for consistently implementing District, federal, and university policies and procedures; adhering to the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) guidelines; maintaining institutional credibility through the proper maintenance of student biographic and academic records; and certifying students for graduation. Services provided by the Registrar’s Office include registration and scheduling adjustments, transcript maintenance and distribution, enrollment, student records management, and dissemination and maintenance of all student demographic data and directories.
Please see the Academic Calendar for registration dates and other important deadlines.

Required textbook information for university courses is available on the university’s web site at www.udcshop.com
Students who wish to audit a course must have approval from the appropriate instructor or department chairperson. A grade assigned by the instructor for a student auditing a course is “AU.”
In applying the course load limitations, the university counts audited courses as a part of the student’s course load. However, for regulations that require full-time status, audited courses are not counted as part of the course load.
Questions or Additional Concerns
Student Identification Cards
New students are issued an identification card at the time of their initial registration. This ID card is required for access to all university services and must be presented on request to university security personnel in university buildings. Replacement ID cards are available upon payment of the requisite fee and proof of registration for the current academic term. The Office of Public Safety issues Student Identification Cards.
