Office of the Registrar


Welcome to the Office of the Registrar

 Office Renovations: Our James Hall office is currently under renovation. We are open, but we are unable to print diplomas in office, transcripts may not be available for same-day pick up, and accessibility to our front counter and availability of staff could be affected at times. Additionally, we will occasionally experience fumes and noise from construction and painting. We recommend calling the front desk at 910-962-3125 for an update before visiting the office.
