Mission Statement

The Office of the University Registrar supports the mission of the University of California, Merced, by serving as the primary office of academic records. To that end, we oversee various processes and programs including: initial student registration through verification of degree conferral, veteran services and classroom scheduling.

We operate with a core group of dedicated staff who strive to use the best technology to provide a personalized customer service experience. In all that we do, we are committed to the principles of mutual respect, fairness, good stewardship and sensitivity to the diverse populations we serve.
