The Office of the University Registrar is responsible for maintaining the academic record of students who have been and are currently enrolled in the undergraduate college, graduate programs, and the theological seminary. On an annual basis, the University Registrar prepares the schedule of classes to be offered for fall and spring semesters as well as during the May Term (Beginning 2021). 

The University Registrar also reviews the transcripts of all students transferring into the University from other educational institutions and determines which courses and credits may be included in their University of Dubuque academic record.

The University Registrar evaluates academic transcripts of students applying for graduation and certifies that they have completed all University requirements for either the bachelor’s, master’s, or doctor of ministry degrees. The list of graduates is then submitted to the Board of Trustees for final approval.  Upon receiving Trustee approval, the appropriate academic degree is granted.
