Historical Note

The Office of the Registrar was created in 1914, under the authority of the University President. Prior to 1914, the duties of the Registrar were allocated to the Secretary of the Board of Trustees, and records can be found in the State Board of Agriculture reports. The Registrar has been responsible to several units, but since 1980 has reported to the Assistant Provost for General Academic Administration.
