The Registrar's Office Summit is a mini-conference to help those on our campus learn what our role is and what services we provide. The Registrar's Office works across the entire campus and is a resource to students, faculty and staff. 

Each year brings many new challenges and changes in both policy and procedures. The divisions of the Registrar's Office will present the changes that have occurred over the past year and how they affect your role here at the University. There will be an opportunity for any questions you may have during the sessions.

8:30-9:10am

Welcome and Session 1

Making Data Driven Decisions With U (East Room)
We all talk about data, but do we actually know where to get it, and what to do with it once we have it? This session will focus on the resources the Student Data Warehouse (SDW) provides to all Colleges on campus, how to request data from the SDW, and a discussion of what the data is used for once it is in your hands. We will be joined by a few SDW College Representatives to add their perspective. If the SDW still does not meet your data needs, we will discuss other options, such as information OBIA provides, and the Request for Information (RFI) process.

Welcome to Café Registration! (North Room)
It’s time to roll up your sleeves. Our chefs (registration specialists) are ready to take your order. We’ll make sure your food comes from our kitchen to your plate, right on time (Registration Timeline). If you have any dietary restrictions (withdraws) please let us know ahead of time. And if you forgot to order a side with your meal (forms) don’t hesitate to ask. Now, we might not have everything you want, but hopefully we’ll have what you need (policy and procedure).

Systems, Technology, Progress and Future Trends ( South Room)
An overview of the functionality delivered in the last year will be featured as well as the goals of the Registrar’s Office. The presentation will also include current/future projects you may see in production soon.

Graduation and Transcripts: Finishing Their Degree and Beyond (East Room)
Join us as we take a look at the graduation process, and the resources that are available to each student through the Graduation and Transcripts Divisions.

Your Strategic Scheduling Vision: Moving Beyond Transactional Scheduling (North Room)
Are you using CLSS to the fullest potential? Do you know how to find and track low enrollment courses? Have you looked at your class demand report lately? This session will discuss how to streamline your course offerings, find the right mix of class times, and become a CLSS super user. We will also look at new training and feedback opportunities, and what’s coming in Astra for the future.

Expedition Articulation: the Undergraduate Transfer Frontier (South Room)
Join us as we embark on a new frontier of implementing the Transfer Evaluation System (TES). This system will allow departments to electronically report undergraduate transfer equivalencies for use in degree audit and pre-requisite checking. We will discuss the role of Transferology in relation to disseminating articulation information to staff and prospective undergraduate transfer students. On our journey we will briefly also discuss changing coming this next spring to our degree audit system.
