The registrar’s office processes course registration for Women’s College, College of Adult Undergraduate Studies, College of Graduate Studies and School of Pharmacy students. The office also handles all student records and transcripts with appropriate confidentiality.
The registrar’s office staff and the staff members of ND Express are available to assist with any records/registration questions or processing.
Currently enrolled students have a registration period toward the close of each semester for the following term. Registration may be done in person, by mail or fax. Registration typically closes one week prior to the start of the semester, with a drop/add period during the first week of classes.
WebAdvisor is a Web-accessible tool for current and prospective students to gather information on courses offered and course availability for each semester, with course descriptions and faculty contact information. Current students also have access (through a personal log-in) to grades, semester schedule, advisor email contact and additional online request capabilities.
Academic Records (FERPA)
Academic records and transcripts are also housed in the registrar’s office. Notre Dame of Maryland has a commitment to protect the confidentiality of student records. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) provides students with certain rights with respect to their education records. These include: the right to inspect and review their records; the right to request an amendment of the student’s education record they believe is inaccurate; the right to consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s record (except where FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent). One exception that permits disclosure without consent is for school/university officials with legitimate educational interests. For more detailed information on academic records, see university catalog.
Students have the ability to provide an approval for others (parents, spouses, etc) to have access to educational and financial records by completing an Authorization to Release Student Information form.
Directory information may be released to the general public without prior written consent. Notre Dame considers the following to be directory information:
- Email Address
- Degrees and awards received
- Dates of attendance
- Participation in official activities/sports
Students must send a written request to the registrar’s office in the first week of the semester to place a hold on the release of any of this directory information. The hold is valid for one semester.
