What We Do:
The Office of the Registrar and Academic Advising supports the mission of St. Olaf College by creating and maintaining each student’s official academic record and preserving its integrity. It guides and serves the college community with confidentiality and respect, while fostering accountability and responsibility.
The job of the Office of the Registrar and Academic Advising is to ensure that all students, from the first semester through graduation, are appropriately enrolled in courses, that the college maintains accurate and up-to-date records of all St. Olaf students, both past and present, and that students and alumni have access to transcript services and verifications as necessary.
To support students’ academic exploration, development, and progress, the Office of the Registrar and Academic Advising welcomes students’ questions about navigating graduation, general education, and major requirements and, through accurate information and “just-in-time” professional development opportunities, supports faculty in their role as academic advisors. If we cannot answer your questions, we will refer you to the best sources of additional help and information.
