The charge of the office of the registrar is to preserve the quality, accuracy, safekeeping and confidentiality of the academic records of all current and former students.



The Registrar's Office maintains the permanent academic records for all students.

An official transcript is printed on blue safety paper and carries the tri-colored Registrar's signature certifying its authenticity or is an electronic PDF transcript sent through eScrip-Safe. Transcripts prior to 1994 are a photocopy with a raised seal and tri-color stamp with the Registrar’s signature.

**Please contact the registrar's office at (605) 394-4935 if you have special mailing requests such as overnight or priority delivery for paper transcripts.
