Columbia P&S Assistant Professor, Harris Wang, Receives Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.—By Chris Williams
Protecting and safeguarding the educational record is one of the core responsibilities of the Office of the University Registrar. Given the highly sensitive nature of information in our systems, we maintain a commitment to full compliance with FERPA regulations and to stay current with best practices in student information management. The Office of the University Registrar reviews all access requests to university systems containing student records.
Before accessing student records, faculty and staff are expected to review FERPA guidelines at: Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Faculty and staff who have access to student records should complete the Security Awareness Training, of which FERPA is a part, here: http://cuit.columbia.edu/cuit/security-awareness-training (link is external) The Office of the University Registrar is available to assist departments and offices with understanding the requirements of FERPA policy and guidelines. Training may be requested at: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s what we do: Answer student, parent, staff, faculty and community inquiries via phone, in person in 205 Kent Hall, AskUs (email) and mail about Registration and billing questions.
Here are the reasons to send students to our offices in Kent:
Working together to provide our undergraduate housing students better service in both the ID Center and Hartley Hall, the ID Center and Hartley Hospitality Desk will soon offer students the convenience of having their housing and meal plan coded in the ID Center in Kent Hall, as well as at the Hospitality Desk in Hartley Hall, which is open 24 hours a day. Previously, students could only get the University ID Cards in Kent and the meal plan coding in Hartley. Soon both places will be able to perform both functions.
We are very excited to launch SSOL transcript requests for AMCAS! Students should now use SSOL to request transcript for AMCAS applications.
We have developed a new registration form to replace the old “Add/Drop" form: the Registration Adjustment Form.
This form should only be used when the action cannot be performed by the student using SSOL.
Things to note:
