Mission Statement

Consistency. Integrity. Efficiency. Service.

The Office of the Registrar supports the academic mission of the College by providing superior service and support to all future students, current students, alumni, faculty, and staff in the pursuit of academic excellence.

We support students throughout their lifetime - as current students and alumni - by maintaining the confidentiality, security and integrity of records; providing transcripts and degree completion verification to other institutions and employers; and by providing reliable, objective and equitable support services.

We partner with faculty and staff to maintain and observe academic policy, to develop tools and procedures for guiding degree completion and outcome tracking, and to provide a host of services that supports the diverse needs of Cortland’s academic and community programs. The Office of the Registrar also supports the campus by adhering to federal and state laws and policies regarding record security, confidentiality and reporting.
